Line 3 in the news
‘I’m a Native American proud to be working on Line 3’

Sept. 2, 2021: Misinformation spread by paid opponents suggests “a foreign company is violating the rights of Native Americans,” writes Matt Gordon. “That is so far from the truth. I should know.”

About the Line 3 Replacement

Work kicked off on this maintenance- and safety-driven replacement project after final permits were received on Dec. 1, 2020. The project is creating family-sustaining, mostly local construction jobs, millions of dollars in local spending and additional tax revenues at a time when Northern Minnesota needs it most.
