Hays County reinstates permission for pipeline to cross county roads

by Anita Miller

Around the same time energy giant Kinder Morgan agreed to adjust the route of its Permian Highway Pipeline (PHP) to avoid crossing the Blanco River, Hays County Commissioners restored the project’s permission to bore under county roads.

The initial route of the 430-mile, 42-inch natural gas pipeline took it across Pump Station Road, Ledgerock Road and Mount Sharp Road in western Hays County.

Commissioners rescinded their original Utility Agreement with Kinder Morgan in the wake of the March 28 fracture of a karst feature as contractors for the project were attempting to bore under the Blanco River, the first of two such river crossings in the original plan.
