MACKINAW CITY, MI (AP)-- Oil is flowing again through side-by-side pipelines beneath the Straits of Mackinac.
Enbridge announced Monday afternoon it has restarted its Line 5, which was shut down over the weekend. The company blamed a power outage. Sens. Gary Peters and Debbie Stabenow of Michigan had pushed for a temporary shutdown because of high winds and heavy currents in the Straits of Mackinac.
Line 5 carries 23 million gallons of oil daily between Superior, Wisconsin, and Sarnia, Ontario.
