Construction of pipeline across Ohio starts in May

Posted: Updated:

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Construction on an underground pipeline across Ohio and sections of 3 more states is expected to employ up to 4,000 workers over eight months and should start in early May.

The Dayton Daily News reports Houston-based Enterprise Products Partners says about 1,500 construction jobs will be in Ohio. A company spokesman says construction will start south of Dayton, and sections will be built in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Indiana.

The pipeline will connect to existing lines to transport liquid petroleum products between Pennsylvania and Texas.

It will cross 265 miles in at least 13 Ohio counties, including Butler, Warren, Greene, Clinton and Fayette counties in southwest Ohio. The others are Pickaway, Fairfield and Licking counties in central Ohio and Muskingum, Coshocton, Tuscarawas, Harrison and Jefferson counties in eastern Ohio.
