Murfreesboro, East Franklin, and Pinhook-Radnor 161-kV Transmission Lines
Rutherford, Williamson, and Davidson Counties, Tennessee
On March 30, 2007, TVA issued a final Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact for its proposal to rebuild and upgrade about 33 miles of transmission lines and make associated upgrades to substations in Middle Tennessee. The proposal is designed to relieve the potential for transmission line overloading in the project area. A 23-mile long 161-kV transmission line between TVA’s existing Murfreesboro and East Franklin Substations would be established by rebuilding a 13-mile segment of a de-energized line and a 10-mile segment of operating 46-kV line. The 10-mile Pinhook Radnor line would be upgraded by adding new conductors. About 1.75 miles of new right-of-way would be required for the project.
