Officials with the controversial Northern Pass project – a proposed 180 mile transmission line from the Canadian border to Deerfield – have missed another deadline.

A post on the project’s website states “although we have identified a new route which meets our project requirements, we believe it is in the best of interest of landowners, communities, and all stakeholders for us to continue to build on the details of this proposal and to take the time now to make some additional refinements before we begin the formal public review processes.”

In a filing to the Securities and Exchange Commission project officials had said it would propose a new route in the first quarter of 2013. They had also previously said they would have a route by December of 2012, but missed that deadline as well.
