SIMON CANYON, N.M. (AP) — For more than five decades, a pipeline has transported natural gas over Simon Canyon near Navajo Dam. In about a week, that pipeline will be gone.

The Farmington Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/2vZ9Kmd ) Harpole Construction Inc. and Williams Companies Inc. are working to remove more than 2,000 feet (610 meters) of pipeline, which starts on the east side of the canyon.

The pipeline is suspended in the air for about 650 feet (198 meters) as it crosses Simon Canyon.

Williams Companies Inc. owns the pipeline, which has been transporting natural gas since 1959. Williams spokeswoman Sara Delgado says the work began Monday and is expected to take approximately one week.

Crews also will remove about 830 feet (253 meters) of 6-inch (15.24 centimeters) pipe that runs down the east hillside.
