ROUTE SELECTION

HOW IS A PIPELINE ROUTE DETERMINED?

Before construction begins, the Byhalia Connection team develops a route that endeavors to limit the project’s impact to landowners, the community and the environment. Experts review multiple factors before recommending a route including the below items. A final route is selected following discussions with landowners, public officials, regulatory agencies and others.

We review:
• Homes, neighborhoods and developments
• Potential protected species and their habitats
• Prominent environmental features, such as wetlands and waterways
• Schools, colleges and universities, and recreational facilities
• Cultural and historic sites

Byhalia Connection is currently in the pre-construction and easement acquisition phase of the project. We’re targeting to start construction in 2021 and be in service approximately nine months later.

SAFETY

We look for a path that allows us to construct the pipeline safely, which protects the integrity of the line and the surrounding community.

The Environment

We work to protect endangered species and their habitats, often changing the pipeline route to accommodate species that are critical to the regions we serve. We do this because we know it’s possible to deliver energy and preserve the environment at the same time.

Communities

We make every effort to minimize disruption in neighborhoods and future development sites, because strong, safe communities are important to all of us.

PEOPLE

We build around community schools, colleges and universities, and recreational facilities to keep our communities running smoothly and efficiently.

HISTORICAL LANDMARKS

We understand the value that cultural and historical sites bring to a community. That’s why we work with experts to identify these sites and route around them.
