Right of Way

The area in which the pipeline is constructed and eventually operated is known as the right of way. The temporary right of way during the construction phase is approximately 100 feet wide. After construction and restoration is complete, the permanent right of way is roughly 50 feet wide.

As the pipeline is constructed or expanded, temporary workspace will be needed adjacent to and along the permanent right of way. While the temporary right of way is approximately 100 feet wide, the exact width will vary depending upon the local topography or sensitive resource areas in the vicinity of the construction. These areas may include rocky or sloping terrain, as well as street, road, stream, railroad or wetland crossings.

Our use of the temporary right of way typically ends after construction is complete and the entire right of way has been fully restored as close as possible to its original conditions and in compliance with all applicable legal requirements.

Above-ground pipeline markers are used along the permanent right of way for easy recognition of the presence of underground pipelines. The markers are typically located in a “line of sight” manner within the rights of way, along streets and at road and railroad crossings. The markers provide helpful information about who operates the pipeline and how to contact them. The marker does not necessarily mark the exact location of the pipeline; therefore, pipelines in the vicinity of any excavation activity should always be located and marked by contacting the local one-call center – at 811 – prior to digging.

Your Land During Construction and After Restoration

​NEXUS values every landowner’s property, and we will work closely with all landowners to ensure that construction, operation and maintenance of the pipeline causes minimal impacts and disruption to their property and daily lives. As you will see in the illustration below, after construction is complete we take tremendous care to restore each landowner’s property as close as possible to its original condition.

To see an illustrated representation of a typical right-of-way restoration during and after construction, slide the tool below from left to right.
