October 26, 2017 - Explorer Running at Reduced Rate on 28 inch System
Explorer's 28 inch system from Houston to Glenpool is currently running at reduced rates due to a temporary repair to the line that was put in place on October 24th. We are working to increase rates on the 28 inch system until permanent repairs are made early next week. Schedules will be updated as new information becomes available.
