LINCOLN The long-awaited verdict on the route of the Keystone XL pipeline across Nebraska will be delivered on Monday.

But even if the route receives the green light, it could be months before construction begins because of promised lawsuits and uncertainty over the economic viability of the $8 billion project.

The Nebraska Public Service Commission has been reviewing the proposed 275-mile route of the crude oil pipeline since February. A vote on the project will be taken Monday at its meeting, which begins at 10 a.m. in Lincoln.

The meeting will be live-streamed. The five elected commissioners will not comment on their decision, which will be laid out in a written order.
