HUDSON — A resolution opposing construction of a cross-state crude oil pipeline passed in a unanimous vote at Tuesday’s Common Council meeting.
Pilgrim Pipeline Holdings, LLC is developing a bi-directional pipeline to carry refined petroleum products such as gasoline, diesel, heating oil, and jet and aviation fuel between Albany and Linden, New Jersey, according to the November 2014 project proposal.
The pipeline would span 178 miles in all, running parallel the New York State Thruway from Albany, then turning east at the 1-287 beltway to Linden, according to the proposal. Distribution points along the way would connect to the pipeline, according to the proposal.
Albany, Ulster, Greene, Orange and Rockland counties would be directly affected by the pipeline, according to the proposal.
