Minnesota utility regulators Tuesday authorized their final go-ahead for Enbridge to build its controversial $2.6 billion oil pipeline across northern Minnesota.

That leaves the Canadian company on the brink of beginning work, only needing a more routine stormwater permit from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA).

The state Public Utilities Commission (PUC) on Tuesday gave its OK for construction to begin. The PUC's action was expected. It approved the overall project in February.
