This week, five labor unions sent a letter to President Obama, calling on the administration to allow construction to continue. In the letter, they say the weeks-long halt in construction has caused hardship for thousands of families.

Now, the panel of judges must decide whether or not to keep construction on hold near Lake Oahe.

Gray Television has reached out to attorneys from the Justice Department who are representing the Army Corps of Engineers. They have declined to comment.

At this point, itís unclear when the appeals court will make their decision. Until that decision is reached, the pipeline company is not allowed to continue construction for 20 miles on either side of the Missouri River at Lake Oahe.

The fight to halt construction of the pipeline began in July, when the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe sued, arguing they were never properly consulted before construction began.
