CLARKSBURG — The Federal Regulatory Commission issued a partial notice to proceed with aspects of construction for Dominion Energy’s Atlantic Coast Pipeline Thursday.

The notice gives Dominion permission to commence “full construction” in areas of Upshur County and Halifax County, North Carolina.

The approval will allow the company to begin constructing contractor yards along the areas where the pipeline itself will be constructed, according to Aaron Ruby, a Dominion spokesman.
