BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota regulators are holding a new round of hearings on a proposed 260-mile electric power transmission line.
Minnkota Power Cooperative of Grand Forks wants to build the line. It will carry power from Minnkota's Milton Young power plant.
The line will cost more than $300 million and stretch from west-central North Dakota to Grand Forks.
North Dakota's Public Service Commission is deciding the power line's proposed route. The commissioners are holding hearings along the route of the proposed line to hear public comment.
The first hearing is Feb. 22 in Washburn's Memorial Hall. The second is Feb. 27 at the University of North Dakota's law school. The third is being held March 1 at the Chieftain Conference Center in Carrington. The hearings start at 9 a.m.
