TC Energy spokeswoman Sara Rabern said Wednesday the Calgary-based company was moving equipment this week and will begin mowing and felling trees along the pipeline's 1,200-mile route within the next week or so. The company anticipates starting construction at a northern Montana border crossing next month.

Environmental groups in January asked U.S. District Judge Brian Morris to block all work while a challenge to the project's permit is pending.
