Sunoco Installing new 22-mile long pipeline in Wayne Co.

By Bobby Warren | Dix Communications Published:

WOOSTER — A buried pipeline to transport new petroleum products can move forward in Wayne County now that the commissioners approved an easement Wednesday for Sunoco Pipeline.

Dubbed the Tiffin to Easton Pipeline, Sunoco, operating for Inland Corp., will install a new, 12-inch steel line within primarily the road rights-of-way. It will run parallel to an existing 8-inch line. Among the products it might convey are gasoline, fuel oil, diesel fuel, jet fuel and kerosene.

Sunoco wanted to begin the project in October, but there was some delay because the plan called for “open cuts” in township roads, said Rob Kastner, the county’s water management engineer and administrator of the storm water pollution management regulations. Trustees wanted the company to bore underneath the road and not cut through the pavement.

The pipeline will stretch about 22 miles in Wayne County. It will enter north of West Salem and travel in a southeasterly direction, eventually running somewhat parallel to Sterling Road and cross south of the roadway to the east of state Route 3.
