Consumers Energy has informed Shelby Township that it will begin tree clearing within the ITC Holdings Corp. corridor that runs north to south west of Schoenherr Road throughout the township. Tree clearing will begin this month prior to construction of a new pipeline within the corridor in May 2019.
Consumers Energy said tree clearing is being done early because of environmental regulations and ground conditions. Crews will be working at different locations on different days along the 7.5-mile corridor for three to four weeks. Specific day-by-day schedules were not available, but crews have already started tree clearing in Sterling Heights.
Crews should not be in any one location for very long, so the impact to specific landowners should be limited to one or two days. Crews will begin work between 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m., Monday through Friday, and will work until 6 p.m.
For question and comments regarding the project, contact Consumers Energy at 800-731-2257 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit www.consumersenergy.com/pipelineproject for more information.
