3D Flyover of PennEast Pipeline Route in vicinity of Kidder, PA (MP 21 to MP 26)

This is part of the 3D flyover video series of the PennEast routes. In this installment, we look at the route in the Kidder, PA vicinity, specifically around mile marker 21 to 26.

As always, the 400′ survey corridor is in smokey gray, the pipeline 50′ permanent easement line is in red, and the light blue areas are temporary construction zones. There is also a 100′ construction right of way not shown here.

The video starts at route 940, with the remainder of this portion all going through forested lands.  We see another example of PennEast-style “co-location” here – the pipeline route parallel with, but not within, another right of way.  So PennEast is more than doubling the existing cut.

At 1:27 we climb up a small hill, and soon plunge down into the second crossing of the Lehigh River.  This one does not show as an HDD or bore under, but instead a straight trenching through the river.    I need to confirm this against the construction plans.
