For the cities along Line 3, the pipeline workers brought a welcome boom, while it lasted
October 18, 2021
On a recent weekday, the city’s main street was quiet. Some cars were parked in front of the post office and around the corner by the meat market.
In the kitchen of the Corner Store and Restaurant on Highway 371, cooks load plates of fried eggs and hash browns for a handful of diners.
It’s a very different scene from earlier this year, during the Line 3 pipeline construction peak, when hundreds of pipeline workers lived and worked in the area.
