HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) - A group opposing plans to build an underground pipeline that would carry crude oil through New Jersey asked Bergen County Freeholders to likewise take a stand against the project.

The Record reports (http://bit.ly/1Mva9LR ) members of the Coalition Against the Pilgrim Pipeline asked the board to join about 40 other local government bodies in speaking out against the $1 billion project.

Municipal and county officials along the pipeline’s proposed route have passed resolutions opposing its construction, but the governors of New York and New Jersey will have final say.

The 178-mile underground pipeline would carry up to 16.8 million gallons of crude and refined fuel daily between Albany, New York and Linden.

Pilgrim Pipeline Holdings, LLC still has yet to file a formal application with state regulators for the project.
