The Line 3 replacement across northern Minnesota will connect the oil fields in Alberta with the Enbridge Energy terminal in Superior, Wis.

Less than a day after state regulators gave the final approval for Enbridge to start building a new $2.6 billion pipeline across northern Minnesota, the Canadian oil company got to work.

The building began "across Minnesota," Enbridge said, even as environmental and Indigenous groups launched another lawsuit seeking to stop construction.

"We will continue to use every legal avenue available to stop the degradation of our waters for future generations to enjoy our treaty-protected resources on and off reservation," White Earth Band of Ojibwe attorney Frank Bibeau said in a statement Tuesday.
