The president and CEO of Grand Forks-based Minnkota Power Cooperative says he’s pleased with the progress of building a new 270 mile high voltage power line – running from the Milton R. Young power station near Center to Grand Forks.
Mac McLennan says that’s despite weather conditions earlier this year.
"Our original proposal was to finish by the end of 2013," said McLennan. "We are now Feburary of 2014."
McLennan says a long winter and a late spring, along with highway weight restrictions, caused the delay.
