SERVING THE PEOPLE OF HUNTLEY SINCE 1960 Che Jluntlep jfarmi^itiE UPS 580-360 THURSDAY AUGUST 29,1996 - VOLUME 36, NUMBER 21 - HUNTLEY, ILLINOIS TVVENTY-FIVECENTi Lakehead Amends Pipeline Route Route Changes Slightly in Three Areas Lakehead Pipe Line has filed a revised route for the expansion of its oil pipeline system through northeastern Illinois, making minor modifications to its original plan to avoid areas fornid to be too congested. The modifications filed with the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) result from surveys, public input and other detailed assessments of the route conducted since the plan was originally submitted. "These modifications are all part of the process of finding the best possible route. After getting out and talking with people we found that there was just too much congestion in some places to obtain a wide enough easement on which to construct the pipeline," said Jim Crawford, project manager for the proposed pipeline. He added that the originally proposed 100-mile pipeline in Illinois will now be about three miles longer because of the changes. The proposed route has been shifted about two miles to the west of Woodstock, between Dimmel Road and Hughes Road, circumventing a subdivision west 0 the town. In Kendall County near Piano, the route will be moved approximately one mile west of Meyerbrook and Woodwind sulxlivisions. In Will County near Channohon, a slight change in the route will be made to skirt a recreational, area. Lakehead officials are now informing affected landowners alx)ut the route changes and will be holding additional landowner meetings in Piano and Woodstock. Negotiations with individual landowners began on June 8 and will continue through the fall of this year. In addition, Lakehead officials are notifying appropriate government regulatory agencies. "Construction on this project is not scheduled to begin until late 1997 or 1998. New landowners along the route still have plenty of time to get involved in this process through the ICC and our right-of-way agents," said CrawfonL Lakehead's route changes near Woodstock, Piano and Joliet are diversions around housing subdivisions and other planned residential developments. "One of the initial concems from the residents was the congestion of buildings along the proposed route. We went out there and found it to be a credible argument in these areas," said Crawford. "Therefore, we altered the route to ensure that we had optimum space to safely construct and operate this pipeline."
