The Risberg Line, a proposed $86 million pipeline, could be operational in the northeast corner of Ashtabula County within the next year, according to the Star Beacon.

RH energytrans, the company building the pipeline, hopes to get approval for the project by June 1 to start construction in July and have the pipeline operational by the end of 2018. The company plans to attach 28 miles of new, 12-inch pipe to an existing line near Meadville, Pennsylvania.

The new stretch of pipeline will travel about 16 miles in a northwestern direction through Pennsylvania before entering Ohio in Conneaut near Baldwin Road. The remaining 12 miles of pipeline will run along Interstate 90 and railroad tracks in Kingsville Township and North Kingsville as well as across private property. The terminus will be located in North Kingsville at a spot near the CSX Railway crossing on Route 193.
