Enbridge’s permit and approval process for the Great Lakes Tunnel Project is off to a fast start with the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) now determining its application is complete. The USACE has set a public comment period through 4 June.

This first determination, coming approximately one month after submittal, is significant and moves the process one step further to the tunnel becoming a reality.

Separately, the Michigan Department of Environment Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) continues to also review the application.

Last week EGLE sent a letter to Enbridge requesting additional information, which is a routine request during permit application reviews. Enbridge will work with EGLE to provide any necessary additional information.

Enbridge appreciates the timeliness and important feedback it is receiving from the permitting agencies.

Pending receipt of all necessary permits and approvals, Enbridge anticipates beginning construction of the Great Lakes Tunnel in 2021. The company expects the replacement Line 5 segment to be operational in 2024.
