Update from the Kingston Ash Recovery Project
To Members of the Roane County Community Advisory Committee
TVA Police no longer stationed on Swan Pond Circle Road
Beginning Friday, March 19, the TVA Police will no longer be stationed at the Swan Pond Circle Road rail crossing. The rail arms will remain in place and will activate when full and empty ash, coal, ammonia, or limestone trains are coming into or going out of the site.
Utility enhancement work continues
Early next week the utility enhancement work under the I-40 Bridge will continue for about four days. The work around the bridge will include the closure of a portion of the south plant entrance road. Contractors will be working from the “island” toward the plant road. None of this work will affect Swan Pond Road.
The work now being performed at the west embayment is expected to be finished by the end of next week. Late next week directional drilling will begin below Hassler Mill and Swan Pond Roads to allow utility lines to cross underneath. None of this work will affect traffic flow except for the times that material is loaded or unloaded onto trucks. Flaggers will be available to direct traffic in these instances.
Please don’t hesitate to call Katie Kline or me if you have any questions.
