TransCanada almost ready with new route
An official from TransCanada announced this week that the company will be ready within weeks to submit new plans for the Keystone XL pipeline with a route that will bypass the Nebraska Sandhills region and Ogallala Aquifer. The pipeline will stretch from Alberta to the Texas Gulf Coast and needs the U.S. State Department approval since the pipeline will cross an international border. The company plans to start construction this spring or summer on a smaller section of pipeline in Oklahoma and Texas. Read the story in the Dickinson Press.
