Getting Roads Fixed from Keystone I

March 15, 2012

Down in Kansas, Butler County commissioners have finally negotiated $1.8 million in compensation from TransCanada for damage to roads during the construction of the Keystone I pipeline, which went operational in summer 2010.  Because the county didn’t have the money to pay for repairs, locals have had to live with the damage for the last few years.  Moral of the story?  If your roads were damaged by Keystone I, you can hold TransCanada’s feet to the fire to get the repairs paid for.  And if Keystone XL is coming your way, make sure at the very least that you get written guarantees that all damage will be fixed to your specifications at TransCanada’s expense by a firm deadline.  A bond to cover damages would be better.
