Since submitting the October 2014 Project Application to the National Energy Board (NEB), TransCanada has continued to engage the City of Oshawa and other area stakeholders to develop an alternate pipeline route proposed by the City that aligns with the Ontario Ministry of Transportation’s (MTO) Highway 407 East corridor. This included an open house in December 2015 to share preliminary mapping. Based on this engagement, as well as engineering and construction planning, TransCanada submitted a Project Update to the NEB on June 3, 2016, identifying this new proposed route as the preferred option for EMP in the City of Oshawa.
The Project Update can be viewed on the NEB website.
