Duke Energy Ohio moving forward with Central Corridor Pipeline application

Duke Energy Ohio is moving forward with its application before the Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) to construct its proposed Central Corridor Pipeline, according to a company press release. Duke Energy Ohio asked to delay the process last summer and has since made minor adjustments after additional testing and meetings with property owners.

The press release states Duke Energy Ohio has advanced the design and alignment of the route, which runs primarily through Blue Ash, Evendale and Reading. Now, the company has asked the OPSB to reschedule the adjudicatory hearing for later this spring or summer. The OPSB will issue its decision on the pipeline sometime after the hearing is complete. Read the full press release and fact sheet from Duke Energy Ohio.

In 2017, the City of Blue Ash filed a motion to intervene in Duke Energy’s proposed Central Corridor Pipeline. The intervention was filed on March 31, 2017, following the OPSB’s acceptance of Duke’s application. Blue Ash City Council has continuously voiced opposition for the project, due to environmental and safety concerns.
