GOODFIELD - Driving through the county, one comes upon some intriguing trenching and the laying of large green pipe. The activity is part of the new Enbridge Pipeline project that is increasing the capacity of its line from Pontiac in Livingston County to Cushing, Oklahoma. 

The $2.6 billion project will carry crude heading south to refineries on the Gulf Coast. The pipe is 36 inches in diameter and parallels the Spearhead system line that was built in the early 1960s. The pipeline originates in Livingston County near Flanagan. From there, the pipeline heads south and west into Woodford County, northwest of El Paso and north of Goodfield; from the northeast corner of Tazewell County, the pipeline travels north and west of Mackinaw, south and east of Tremont and north of Green Valley. In Mason County, it continues southeast of Forest City and Topeka and then just south of Havana, where it crosses the Illinois River. In Fulton County, the pipeline travels north of Astoria, before heading into Schuyler, Brown and Adams counties.
