LYNDON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities have reached a $1.3 million agreement with Enbridge Inc. to cover the cost of damage that the company's pipeline construction work will do on roads in the Ann Arbor area.
The Washtenaw County Road Commission recently negotiated the deal after Enbridge's construction schedule for its new crude oil pipeline ran into seasonal weight restrictions. Enbridge is based in Calgary, Alberta.
AnnArbor.com says the deal exempts Enbridge from adhering to seasonal weight restrictions while paying for
repair and reconstruction of the roads it's using. Most are in Lyndon Township in the northeast corner of Washtenaw County.
Construction of the $190 million pipeline began in September. It runs parallel to an existing Enbridge pipeline.
The lines will supply the Marathon refinery in Detroit and the BP-Husky Refinery in Toledo, Ohio.
