The fuel will not be flowing anytime soon through the lone pipeline serving Green Bay and Northeast Wisconsin.
Illinois-based West Shore Pipe Line Company said Wednesday that it’s considering rebuilding the aging, repair-plagued line north of Milwaukee. In a statement to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, company officials said they are working on how to supply the Green Bay area with gas and diesel fuel in the meantime.
The pipeline initially closed back on March 10 for repairs and inspections, but it has never reopened. That prompted Governor Walker to declare an energy emergency to allow tanker truck drivers to work overtime to get fuel up to Titletown. Walker has already extended that declaration twice.
