Oil Pipeline May Come Through Bond County

A new oil pipeline may be constructed through Bond County.

At this week’s Bond County Board meeting, Board Chairman Howard Elmore told the board about a new pipeline, being constructed by Dakota Access Pipeline, LLC.

The 32-inch pipeline will begin in North Dakota, enter Illinois north of Quincy, and could pass through Bond County on its way to Patoka. It will end on the Texas/Louisiana state line, near the Gulf.

A timeline for the project was not discussed.
