Minncan project crosses snowmobile trails
As MinnCan project con-struction continues throughout the winter, Minnesota Pipe Line Co. has placed barricades and blink-ing lights in areas where the pipeline construction is ac-tive and intersects snowmo-bile trails.
Signs are also located on the trails alerting snowmo-bilers of construction ahead.
Following are area snowmobile trails affected by MinnCan project con-struction: Bemidji-Itasca Trail (Mississippi Headwa-ters State Forest); Clearwater Trail Blazers Trail; Crow River Snowmo-bile Trails; Forest Riders Snowmobile Trail; Itasca State Park trails; and Wadena County Trails.
The MinnCan project is a 304-mile pipeline that will bring additional supplies of crude oil to Twin Cities re-fineries to help meet the en-ergy needs of Minnesotans.
