The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says as hunters go into the fields in southern Michigan this season, they should use caution and be aware of construction activity on the Enbridge pipeline project.
Enbridge is currently constructing segments of the Line 6B pipeline that crosses 11 counties in Michigan. They include Berrien, Calhoun, Cass, Ingham, Jackson, Kalamazoo, Livingston, Macomb, Oakland, St. Clair and St. Joseph.
The work will continue during both small and big game hunting seasons.
The DNR says hunters should avoid hunting near construction sites and are urged to use caution when driving near areas of pipeline construction. Hunters should also watch for flaggers, construction caution signs, slow traffic and workers in these areas.
The pipeline right-of-way is private property and should not be entered.
The Enbridge Line 6B pipeline runs from Griffith, Indiana to Marysville, near Port Huron.
