Line 3 Replacement can free up or eliminate up to 2000 railcars PER DAY –
Pipelines are a safer crude oil transport and a more efficient way to transport oil.
Line 3 Replacement can help reduce train and rail car congestion in the Twin Cities and other parts of Minnesota
Today three out of four trains in the Twin Cities are transporting crude oil.
Line 3 Replacement will create hundreds of good paying jobs along its 610-mile path –
People and their families in communities across the state will benefit from construction jobs created by the pipeline.
Line 3 Replacement will create thousands of additional jobs –
The $2.5 billion investment will require massive equipment and service purchases that will help support other businesses.
Line 3 Replacement helps improve the economy in cities along the line –
