Fayette County Pipeline In Final Stages

Enbridge, Incorporated is in the finishing stages of the installation of a pipeline that will end at Patoka.

Jennifer Smith, manager of stakeholder relations for Enbridge, told WGEL construction on this section of the pipeline, which runs about 168 miles from Livingston County to Fayette County, started in June and should wrap up by November. The line should be in service by the end of the year.

The company announced in 2013 it was moving forward with the pipeline extension. Property easements and permits were secured to allow construction to begin this past June.

The Enbridge project is not to be confused with the proposed Dakota Access pipeline project, which may possibly go through the northeast corner of Bond County and into Fayette County.
