RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A proposed natural gas pipeline’s route in Southside Virginia would rely more on existing utility rights under changes proposed by a developer.

The proposed changes would affect 230 landowners in Brunswick and Southampton counties and the city of Suffolk.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1dMi3V6 ) reports that Dominion Transmission Inc. filed the proposed route changes with federal regulators this week. The Atlantic Coast Pipeline is being proposed by Dominion Transmission parent Dominion, Duke Energy and other partners.

Greg Parks, the project’s construction supervisor, tells the newspaper that developers are still exploring opportunities for routes and adjustments.

The 550-mile pipeline would begin in Harrison County, West Virginia, and run through Virginia and North Carolina to Robeson County, near the South Carolina border.
