Enbridge Inc. is pleased with today's decision from the Minnesota Court of Appeals, which acknowledges the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission's thorough review of the Line 3 Replacement Project (L3RP) and confirms that commissioners appropriately approved the project's environmental impact statement (EIS), certificate of need and route permit.

"After six years of community engagement, environmental review, regulatory and legal review, it's good to see confirmation of previous decisions on the Line 3 Replacement Project," said Vern Yu, Enbridge Executive Vice President and President Liquids Pipelines. "From the start, the project has been about improving safety and reliability for communities and protecting the environment."

L3RP was thoroughly vetted and regulatory and permitting review consisted of 70 public comment meetings, appellate review and reaffirmation of a 13,500-page EIS, four separate reviews by administrative law judges, 320 route modifications in response to stakeholder input, and multiple reviews and approvals by the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission for the project's certificate of need and route permit.

World class construction technology and environmental safeguards are central to this essential modernization and safety replacement project that is already providing significant economic benefits for counties, small businesses, Native American communities, and union members - creating thousands of family-sustaining construction jobs, millions of dollars in local spending and tax revenues at a time when the state needs it most.

The replacement project is finished in Canada, Wisconsin and North Dakota and construction is more than 60 percent complete in Minnesota. The project is on track to be in service in the fourth quarter of 2021.
