Natural gas pipeline project put on hold
The developers of a planned 120-mile natural gas pipeline that would travel through portions of area counties say the project is being suspended indefinitely.
The proposed Commonwealth Pipeline would carry natural gas from a deposit in the Marcellus Shale in Lycoming County. It would travel through Columbia, Montour, Northumberland, Schuylkill and Berks counties on its way to Chester County.
The groups behind the project have announced on their website that the project is being suspended. No reason is being given, but the group says it will provide updates at a later time.
