TVA Presents Plans for Proposed Transmission Project

May 18, 2015

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn., – The Tennessee Valley Authority is proposing upgrades to its transmission system that would increase reliability and provide power for the growing electricity demand in the Clarksville area.

TVA is proposing to build a new 12-mile Montgomery-Clarksville transmission line utilizing existing rights of way. TVA’s Montgomery substation and Clarksville Department of Electricity’s East Clarksville substation would be expanded to accommodate the new higher voltage line.

An informational public open house will be held from 3:00 - 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 28, 2015, at the Wilma Rudolph Event Center at Liberty Park, 1188 Cumberland Drive, Clarksville, Tennessee.

Detailed maps showing the transmission system improvements will be available and TVA staff will be on hand to answer questions and discuss concerns.
