Flanagan South Pipeline Project

Illinoisans disappointed because the U.S. Senate didn’t pass the Keystone XL pipeline measure letting multi-national corporations bring tar-sand Canadian oil down through the Great Plains above major water sources to get crude to refineries to export: Take heart.

Macomb police said one of the pipeline workers missing since Thursday was captured in Aurora, Colorado, then hanged himself after telling police where his co-worker’s body might be found.

Two men who were living in Macomb while working on construction of the Flanagan South oil pipeline have been reported missing.

Construction is underway on a new oil pipeline that will carry Canadian oil across several states. The line will begin in Illinois. 

In this report, you'll hear about the potential benefits and concerns with the project.
