On April 22, 2016, MVP announced a new alternative route through Montgomery County. It’s called the Mount Tabor Alternative and can be found in more detail here:
Scroll to the bottom of the list and open the last document, #4047320. The maps for our area can be found on pp. 15-19–it looks like the image above (the blue line).
Alternative Route 200 is still being considered, as well, and surveyors are active in the area. If you’re interested in looking at a map of the MVP pipeline that also includes local sinkholes, caves, mines, and other environmental factors that would be disrupted by the pipeline, you can see it here. You can also find a copy on the website for Montgomery County: http://montgomerycountyva.gov/pipeline
What you may not know about the pipeline:
- The pipeline route may still be adjusted, even as it’s being put in the ground. This map is the latest that we have.
- There are temporary and permanent access roads that will be built by MVP. This means that more people are directly affected by the pipeline than may realize it.
- The route does not currently reflect cultural and historical properties, artifacts, and other items that may be destroyed.
We need your help identifying things that are missing from this map: physical and cultural elements that will be disrupted by the pipeline.
