Good to see the TVA plan. Notable is that the proposed line overlaps very little with the Waterville right-of-way, and the agnecy is accepting comments at the July 10 meeting and until August 11. Most of the East Knox segment is well south of the old right-of-way. To a large extent it follows existing development rather than the existing right-of-way, including following I-40 from the Straw Plains exit to Midway Rd.
It gets a little funky near Maloneyville, which I presume means there are several alternate routes to choose among.
It looks like TVA is trying to do this the right way instead of the cheap and easy way. They cite overloaded equipment and a growing area that needs more power; I am curious which area needs power and which equipment needs relief. Assuming the need justifies the expense, the route that misses the Waterville right-of-way is preferable to the straight line of the old easement.
