Enbridge Line 3 Replacement Project Public Hearings Schedule

On Friday, September 8, 2017, the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission issued the Certificate of Need and Route Permit Notice for the Line 3 Replacement Project. This begins the final public participation phase of permitting considerations before an anticipated decision on the project in April 2018.
