BRISTOL, Tenn.The Tennessee Valley Authority will temporarily close South Holston Dam Road, in Sullivan County, Tenn., on Monday, March 13 for approximately 12 months. Holston View Dam Road and access to the top of the dam, overlooks, picnic areas and the weir dam will NOT be impacted. TVA construction crews will be upgrading all the major mechanical and electrical components in the powerhouse and switchyard.

Project updates will be posted on TVA’s Facebook and Twitter sites.
