The judge ordered the shutdown of Line 5 last week at the request of state Attorney General Dana Nessel. That came after damage was found to a structure anchoring a section of the pipeline that runs through the Straits of Mackinac, a channel linking Lakes Huron and Michigan.

In an updated order Wednesday, the judge said Enbridge could reopen the pipeline to conduct a safety test and could keep the oil flowing in keeping with its results.

Enbridge says it will comply with the court order.
