CORTLANDT, N.Y. -- The town of Cortlandt had spent two years fighting construction of Spectra Energy's Algonquin pipeline. Still, the project will move forward, according to lohud.com.

The town, which had spent more than $300,000 to fight the pipeline, will receive $2.8 million from Spectra under a deal that will allow construction of the project, which will carry natural gas through New York state to points in New England and elsewhere, according to lohud.com.

The $2.8 million Cortlandt will receive essentially covers the price tag for the purchase from Consolidated Edison of 99 acres of river-adjacent land needed for the project, according to lohud.com.

Susan Van Dolsen, an activist leader who had tried to stop the pipeline's construction, said she planned to hold a vigil near the New Castle home of Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Saturday, according to lohud.com.
