BRIGHTON, Colo. (AP) Commissioners in Adams County have voted to approve construction of a new pipeline to carry crude oil from Colorado to Oklahoma.

The White Cliffs Twin Pipeline will run parallel to an existing pipeline. It is intended to double the capacity. Together, the pipelines will be able to move about 150,000 barrels of oil per day.

The Denver Post reports the board voted Monday to include a requirement that requires the operators to comply with new state air quality regulations.

The pipeline will cross Adams County through about 23 miles of the northeast corner of the county. In total, the pipelines both span about 527 miles, originating in Platteville, Colo., and traveling to Cushing, Okla.
