LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Opponents of the Keystone XL pipeline in Nebraska are making good on their promise to build a barn in the project's path.

Volunteers will gather on Saturday at a groundbreaking ceremony for the solar- and wind-powered barn. The barn will sit on land directly on the pipeline's route, about 15 miles northwest of York.

Organizers say the barn will serve as a gathering place to learn about sustainable energy alternatives that would benefit agriculture. If President Barack Obama approves a federal permit for the oil pipeline, opponents say the barn's location would force pipeline developer TransCanada to either reroute the Keystone XL or destroy the barn.

Opponents also plan to build picnic tables and paint billboards that will be placed with landowners along the pipeline route.
