GRAND FORKS, N.D. - With workers heading to hotels in Thief River Falls, northwest Minnesota counties are looking forward to a boost in business following final approvals for the Enbridge Line 3 pipeline replacement project.

The approvals for the project came in a flurry after Enbridge had been seeking the go-ahead for six years to replace its degrading pipeline. On Monday, Nov. 30, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency issued a stormwater construction permit, which followed final construction approval from the state utility regulator on Nov. 25, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers signed off on the project a day before that.

Pipeline workers didn't waste any time heading to the region. Now, the seven hotels in Thief River Falls, Minn., as well as surrounding areas, are beginning to fill up.
