As part of an informational video series, the MVP project team is releasing its second video to update stakeholders on restoration activities along the pipeline right-of-way.
With work on the Mountain Valley Pipeline nearly complete, this video shows footage from multiple water and road crossings already successfully completed by crews along MVP’s 303-mile route. These include Laurel Run in West Virginia, the Pigg River and the North Fork of the Roanoke River in Virginia, and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
As of late 2021, more than half of the right-of-way has been fully restored to pre-construction conditions. The featured crossings illustrate the importance of full restoration, and how this provides significantly greater protection against erosion and sedimentation – as compared to temporary control measures, which must remain in place until the project is finished and the pipeline is operational.
More than 270 miles of the pipeline have been welded and put in place. The first installment of this video series featured several fully restored sections of the right-of-way, as well as areas of active construction, and highlighted the project team’s ongoing efforts to control erosion and sediment.
Mountain Valley continues to work with state and federal regulators to secure the final authorizations necessary to finish crossing the remaining waterbodies and fully restore the remainder of the right-of-way.
The project is targeted to enter service in summer 2022.
