Construction Begins On Eastern Ohio Pipeline
Work on an underground pipeline to transport liquid petroleum products across Ohio has begun in the eastern part of the state.

But farmer Wayne Graham has leased some of his Frazeysburg property for a makeshift pipe yard for the project. He says the company has promised to restore his land after construction is completed.
