Enbridge Line 3 Halfway Done, on Pause Until May
Since April, work is currently on an environmentally mandated "Spring Break" pause.
DULUTH, Minn.- Enbridge’s Line-3 Pipeline Replacement Project is 50% complete.
During a virtual open house Tuesday, construction officials said 200 miles of the pipeline is welded, coded, in the ground and back-filled — leaving roughly 140 more miles left.
Since April, work is currently on an environmentally mandated “Spring Break” pause.
“We are paused and the reason for that pause is we have environmental restrictions, specifically to wetlands and water-bodies that prohibit any in-stream work between April 1st to June 1st,” said Barry Simonson, Project Director.
Enbridge hopes to have more than 4,000 workers back on the main line by June.
