GLASGOW – Materials that will be used to construct the Keystone XL Pipeline are beginning to make their way into Montana.

The pipe will be brought into both Montana and South Dakota and stored along the proposed route until construction begins, according to TransCanada spokeswoman Robynn Tysver.

“We are excited to be moving this project forward,” Tysver said Thursday.

Glasgow Mayor Becky Erickson said the company told her they could expect 40 to 45 trucks carrying pipe to go through the area every day.

Erickson said the pipe will be transported to one of the various pipe yards along the route, which will all have various security measures in place to protect the materials.

Tysver said construction on the pipeline is expected to begin sometime this coming spring or summer.
