First Steel Pipe for Constitution Pipeline Rolls Out of Pennsylvania Mill
The first sections of steel pipe planned to be used during the proposed construction of the Constitution Pipeline have been manufactured at a steel mill in Steelton, Pa.
Dura-Bond Pipe of Export, Pa., has manufactured about 33 miles of 30-inch pipe. The pipe is currently being stored at Dura-Bond’s pipe yard in Pennsylvania.
The pipe, which cost $20 million, represents a direct economic benefit for the state of Pennsylvania by the Constitution Pipeline project.
A study developed by a third-party research firm found that of the $683 million spent by Constitution Pipeline Company during the initial three-year planning and building process, approximately $233 million in goods and services would be purchased in Pennsylvania and New York, generating about $3 million in sales tax revenue.
In addition, once the pipeline became operational, it would result in $13 million in new annual sales, income and property tax revenue.
