CHEYENNE -- A detailed federal review of a proposed $3 billion power line that would run through Wyoming, Utah, Colorado and Nevada and deliver power to the Southwest will be delayed about six months, a Bureau of Land Management spokeswoman said.

The project's size and the multiple states involved have made for a complicated review process that aims to find the best route for the transmission line, BLM spokeswoman Beverly Gorny said.

TransWest Express LLC wants to build the 725-mile line to provide power generated mostly from renewable wind energy sources.
