The Mackinac Straits Corridor Authority is the body charged with overseeing the construction of the proposed Enbridge Great Lakes Tunnel through the Straits of Mackinac.

Enbridge should not build this tunnel, and MSCA must begin to act in the public's interest instead of working as a green stamp for Enbridge. We invite you to join us and give public comment at this meeting (agenda).

Please see our suggested talking points below to prepare to give your comment. We'll send the talking points in your confirmation email, too.

If you cannot attend in person, you may watch the meeting on the MSCA YouTube channel. Let us know you'll watch: Send your rsvp via our other watch-online event (we want to know how many people will be watching). You cannot give public comments via the YouTube link.

Please note that this meeting is a replacement for the postponed Feb 2, 2022 meeting.


You can submit written comments directly to the MSCA using this form. Use our talking points as a starter for your comments. 

UPDATE: The meeting ended early at approximately 11:15 AM.

Dear MSCA Board Members,

Recent developments have revealed alarming truths about Enbridge’s proposed oil tunnel in the Straits of Mackinac. As you know, in 2021 Enbridge asked FERC to depreciate their pipeline system over a 20 year period. This rapid depreciation timeline stands in stark contrast with the 99-year lease Enbridge signed to operate the tunnel and could leave the tunnel, which the state would own, as a stranded asset about a decade after its completion. As the board trusted to oversee this project, you must act in the public’s interest and request an Attorney General Opinion as to whether this material change in circumstances invalidates the 99-year tunnel lease.

Further, testimony before the Michigan Public Service Commission and independent expert evaluations have raised the risk of an explosion in the tunnel both during and after the project’s completion. Any risk of an explosion under the Great Lakes must be fully investigated before this project is permitted to continue. Please request that the National Transportation Safety Board conduct a study on this topic, and also invite the experts who have raised this concern to present their concerns to you in a future meeting. As a public oversight body, you must at least investigate the risks of a major explosion under the Great Lakes before allowing this project to move forward.

Thank you,
