Construction of the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline has been halted.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has told Standing Rock protesters that the current route for the pipeline will be denied, according to a statement from the tribe.

The $3.8-billion pipeline is nearly complete, except for a section that travels under a reservoir of the Missouri River near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.

For months, thousands of people have descended upon a handful of camps in the area to voice opposition to the pipeline. The largest is the Oceti Sakowin Camp, which is managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Let us hope that when Trump will become president, the pipeline construction won’t start again.

  2. Thank you for post, and the word you use temporary is just right.

    Already, via CNN morning news cable. ETP CEO, already clambering they will not change route. Then enters President Elect???? It is a small torture daily for My brother and sisters at Standing Rock.
