BLM withdraws right-of-way approval for transmission line project

Withdrawal comes after Albany county group, retired biologist challenged the decision in court

The Rock Creek Wind Gen-Tie Transmission Line hit a snag last week as the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) withdrew its decision to grant a right-of-way for the project to cross federal public lands in southeastern Wyoming.

The announcement came in a press release from the group Albany County Conservancy who, along with retired U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service biologist Mike Lockhart, were plaintiffs in a legal challenge to the decision. The Rock Creek Wind Gen-Tie project is part of the Rock Creek I and Rock Creek II wind energy projects which straddle the Albany-Carbon county line.
