HOLDENVILLE, Oklahoma -

Two women protesting the Keystone XL Pipeline have found a "solid" way to halt construction work.

Holdenville Police say the women cemented themselves to the ground in the area of the pipeline's construction site.

According to the Great Plains Tar Sands Resistance (GPTSR) website, the two women are members of the Cross Timbers Earth First protest group. The women walked on to the construction site early Tuesday morning and locked their arms into concrete-filled barrels in an effort to stop progress on the pipeline. 

Both women were extracted shortly after 9 a.m. and were taken into police custody. The GPTSR website identified the women as "Holly" and "Bailey" but did not mention last names.

Police have not said what charges the two women will face.
