LAND BETWEEN THE LAKES, KY/TN: The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) contractor clearing electrical transmission line right-of-ways in Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area will be entering Lyon County, Kentucky next week. Currently, they are approximately 1-mile from crossing Woodlands Trace National Scenic Byway at the intersection with Mulberry Flat Road (Forest Service Road 135) in Trigg County.

The TVA contractor began the project in the Neville Bay area and is slowly moving north, removing overgrowth that has encroached upon the area beneath the electrical lines. When completed, approximately 75 feet from the center on each side of electrical transmission lines will be cleared to help protect the lines from falling trees. Overgrowth will be removed along approximately 31 miles of electrical transmission lines in Land Between The Lakes.

Land Between The Lakes management asks visitors to take extra safety precautions traveling roads and trails that may cross under the electrical transmission lines during this time period.
