TC Energy has announced plans for a local meeting regarding the Keystone XL pipeline route and planned construction Feb. 27 at the Fallon County Fairground Exhibit Hall.

According to the energy company, pre-construction on the route is scheduled to start in March with a workforce comprised of project staff and contractors.

The company spokeswoman said there would be a temporary increase in population and traffic in the areas closest to the worksites. She added that the company anticipates starting in April in some areas along the route and finishing up by December.

The 10 a.m. meeting is designed to discuss with local officials about the scope of the work and to answer questions.

According the company, the meeting is one of the requirements established by the Montana Facility Siting Act (MFSA) certificate to notify local officials of the project’s upcoming activities in 2020.
