(CNN) – Construction of a natural gas pipeline that was supposed to span three states is off.

Dominion energy and Duke energy say they’re canceling the Atlantic Coast Pipeline Project.

The companies won a victory from the Supreme Court, but they say the project no longer makes sense economically.
