The company says most of the line will parallel an existing Enbridge pipeline right of way.

Enbridge officials say the pipeline will start in Flanagan, Ill., run south through Missouri and Kansas, until it reaches its terminus at Cushing.

The Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise reports (http://is.gd/p76CgI ) that construction is to begin within the next few months. The work will include seven pump stations and the line will be able to move 600,000 barrels per day.

An open house is set for Thursday at Pawhuska.

Enbridge is working with the Osage Nation to fill about 200 jobs for the project.
