TVA to Provide Information on Proposed Transmission Line Project

July 7, 2014

LYNNVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Valley Authority is proposing to rebuild about 3.5 miles of transmission line in the Lynnville area to improve service reliability.

The project would rebuild the existing Columbia-Lynnville 46-kilovolt Transmission Line to 161-kilovolt standards and install associated switches on new structures. This transmission line would supply power to Pulaski Electric System’s Lynnville 161-kilovolt Substation. The transmission line would be built using steel pole structures centered on 100-foot-wide right of way, consisting of existing 75-foot-wide right of way plus 25 feet of new right of way.

TVA staff will provide information and answer questions about the project on Thursday, July 17, 2014, from 3-7 p.m. CDT, at the Municipal Building, 101 Mill St., Lynnville, Tennessee.

Detailed maps showing the location will be available.
