Enbridge has wrapped up its Line 3 replacement project in North Dakota. As a whole, over 1,000 miles of pipeline and facilities are being replaced in Canada, North Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The work is complete in Canada, North Dakota and Wisconsin. “We are poised once we get all final permits to start constructing Line 3 in Minnesota,” said Barry Simonson, who oversees the project in the U.S. Dave Hodek managed the Enbridge replacement effort in North Dakota and says the focus is now on restoration of farm ground. “We’re working in probably one of the richest agricultural areas in the world with the Red River Valley,” said Hodek. “It is very important to us to return that land back to the same productivity that it had before we came in to install the pipeline and we take that very seriously.” An event recognizing the completion of the North Dakota portion of the project was held at the Pembina County fairgrounds.
