Specifically, in order to accommodate the Alabama Department of Transportation's (ALDOT) Corridor “X” Project Nos. APD-471(503) and APD-471(501), Southern requests authorization to rearrange and relocate its 20-inch Line, 22-inch Loop Line, and 24-inch Line, and to relocate its Fultondale No. 1 metering facility. Southern proposes to combine its 20-inch Line and 22-inch Loop Line into a single 30-inch line starting at approximate Milepost 317.825 and extending to approximately Milepost 320.414. In addition, Southern's Fultdale No. 1 metering facility will be relocated from its present location near the U.S. Highway 31 pipeline crossing at approximate Milepost 319.3 on the 20-inch Line and 22-inch Loop Line, to a new location at milepost 319.762 connecting to the new 30-inch North Main Line and existing 24-inch Line. Also, Southern's 24-inch Line will have to be relocated from Milepost 195.481 to the proposed Corridor “X” and I-65 crossing at Milepost 196.881. The portions of the 20-inch Line and 22-inch Loop line that remain subsequent to combining them into the new 30-inch North Main Line will be abandoned in place or removed as field conditions require.
