River Traffic Caution on Clinch River at Bull Run Fossil Plant

Aug 20, 2020

OAK RIDGE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Valley Authority has issued a river traffic caution for transmission line work on the Bull Run–North Knoxville 161-kilovolt transmission line where it crosses the Clinch River at river mile-marker 46 at the Bull Run Fossil Plant.

Helicopters will be used for work on the TVA transmission line during daylight hours on Monday, Aug. 24.    

Notices have been placed at nearby boat ramps to ensure boater safety. Watercraft operators should avoid the area or take extra precautions. Everyone in the area should heed warnings of the safety patrol boats and personnel that will be on patrol in the area. Marine channels 13, 16 and 81 will be monitored by the safety boats.

TVA is investing $2.2 billion valleywide in transmission system improvements between 2019 and 2024 to continue our mission of providing cleaner, low cost, reliable power.
