The fate of the Keystone XL Pipeline potentially through Antelope County will be announced Monday.
The Nebraska Public Service Commission will report an order on the OP-0003 Keystone XL pipeline application during a public meeting at 10 a.m. Monday at the commission headquarters, according to a news release.
Doors to the hearing room will open at 9:30. Space in the hearing room is limited; entry will be allowed on a first come, first serve basis. The Commission meeting will be live streamed on their Facebook page.
The application mentions three routes, including the “preferred” through Boyd, Holt and Antelope counties. The second routes or “mainline alternative” and takes a different path out of Antelope County to eventually follow the route of the existing Keystone pipelines.
The third route called the “Sandhills alternative,” would cross 13 counties in central Nebraska. It would go through 13 counties, but not Antelope. It would still go through Holt County.
