Army Corps Opens Lengthy Environmental Review Of Line 5 Tunnel For Comment

"The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on Monday opened a two-month window for the public to comment on a plan to dig a tunnel beneath the Straits of Mackinac to house Enbridge's controversial Line 5 oil pipeline.

The federal agency's publication of a "notice of intent" of its scoping process allows for public comment through Oct. 14 at

The public comment period is part of the corps' potentially years-long effort to develop an environmental impact statement to determine what the impact of tunnel construction in the straits would be. The corps announced in June 2021 that it would conduct an environmental impact review of the tunnel."
