TVA is pulling a new fiber line across the Cumberland River between mile markers 290-303 over the next few weeks. They will be pulling the line March 24 at CRM 290, March 29 at CRM 294, and March 30 at CRM 303. This should be a single-day operation each time and will take place between the hours of 6 a.m. and 7 p.m.
There will be patrol boats on site to warn recreational and commercial vessels. Traffic may need to be briefly stopped; however, any stoppages should not greatly impact river traffic. TVA will also have warning signs placed at all boat ramps within a few miles of the work location. Even though these are the proposed dates, depending on weather, these dates could change in either direction. Therefore, all boats are cautioned to be aware of these operations each day for the rest of the month.
