Gov. Whitmer Open to Allowing Straits of Mackinac Oil Tunnel
The governor says she is open to building a tunnel for Enbridge’s Line 5 pipeline, but says she will pursue any strategy to get the existing pipes out of the water as quickly as possible.
Snyder and Enbridge had agreed to run a new pipeline through a tunnel.
Governor Whitmer stopped work on that deal last month after the state attorney general said the law that allowed it was unconstitutional.
Enbridge hopes to have a tunnel done by 2024.
