#Fracking #Pipelines in Your Neighborhood: Intro to a Dirty Picture Collection

In its MXP DEIS, FERC states that the proposed pipeline construction would only be a minor inconvenience to residents. The daily restriction of routine travel my neighbors and I experienced went way beyond minor during the 11-month-long construction period of another pipeline. Our experience completely contradicts what FERC states.

Below are photos of just a very small sample of the traffic restrictions along multiple roadways near pipe storage yards, pipe work yards, and the pipeline right-of-way where it was close to or crossed a public roadway. Local traffic was always stopped for the convenience of the pipeline equipment trucks.
