Permits for gas pipeline crossing under Blue Ridge Parkway canceled; company says plans can be fixed

Construction of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline has hit a new roadblock in the Blue Ridge Mountains at a critical crossing beneath a scenic national parkway.

A three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday tossed out two federal permits issued for the $5.5 billion, 600-mile natural gas pipeline, including one the National Park Service granted for the pipeline to cross under the Blue Ridge Parkway between Augusta and Nelson counties.
