Original MVP Corridor Maps (October 2014)

MVP has not withdrawn or modified its pre-filing with FERC or the National Forest Service. The following maps represent the original corridor. They may still be considered as a final option.

MVP Proposed Route Using Google Earth and Geographical Information Systems (link to PreservetheNRV)

Dr. Stockton Maxwell, Assistant Professor of Geospatial Science at Radford University has been working with PreservetheNRV to help landowners and citizens see the proposed MV pipeline route. He created a Google Earth file of the entire route of the MVP including a buffer of 150 feet on each side of the route for the right-of-way during the construction phase of the project.

The Appalachian Connector (formerly known as Western Marcellus) pipeline

Yet Another Gas Pipeline has been proposed by Williams Transco (The Monroe Watchman).

Information suggests another company has its sights set on Monroe for a natural gas transmission line. The company has not published detailed maps of this proposed pipeline corridor.  However, the preliminary route slices through Monroe County in some different areas than the Mountain Valley pipeline.
