The Tennessee Valley Authority is pulling a new fiber line across the Cumberland River mile 243.5 at the Gallatin Fossil Plant 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 9, 2021. TVA will have three patrol boats on site to warn recreational and commercial vessels. Those vessels will monitor channels 16 and 13. Traffic will be stopped as needed. There will also be warning signs placed at all boat ramps within a few miles of the work location the week prior to the work. Even though this is the proposed date, depending on weather, the date could change a few days in either direction; therefore, all boats are cautioned to be aware of these operations a few days before and after. Call Shane Carman with TVA at 256-314-7840 or contact him via e-mail at for more information.
