ASHLAND, Miss. – The Tennessee Valley Authority is providing information about a transmission line project that would supply power to Holly Springs Utility Department’s new substation and improve power reliability in the area.

TVA is proposing to build 15 miles of 161-kilovolt transmission line. The line would extend from TVA’s existing Holly Springs-Miler 161-kilovolt Transmission Line to the new substation north of Ashland, at the intersection of Lamar Road and County Church Road.

The new line would consist of new steel pole structures built beside the existing 46-kilovolt line that currently serves the Ashland area. A combination of new and existing right of way would be used. The existing old wood pole line would be removed once the new line is complete and able to serve the new Ashland station.

The line would be built on steel pole structures.

The public is encouraged to find out more about the project at an open house on Thursday, March 20, 2014, from 3-7 p.m. CDT, at the Eddie L Smith Multipurpose Building, 235 N Memphis St., Holly Springs, Miss.

Detailed maps for the proposed power line will be available. TVA staff will provide information and answer questions. More information is available at http:/www.tva.com/transmissionprojects.
