Latest Projected Map

Here’s the latest map depicting a possible route being considered. It is based on reports from landowners that have been contacted. Many thanks to our local Floyd County government for their assistance in creating this important resource.

Based on new information including map points from Floyd County landowners who have been contacted by requests for easement surveys, this new map provides more current information about specific county farmland, streams, roadways, forests, churches, businesses and home places potentially impacted by the construction of this inter-state natural gas pipeline.

More specific details about particular communities along this updated path will be available soon.
