Barren River Lake boat traffic caution issued as TVA removes transmission line

   A boat traffic caution has been issued for the Barren River Lake, beginning Tuesday, Jan. 7, as the Tennessee Valley Authority removes a retired transmission line from across the lake.
   Work is scheduled from 9 a.m. -5 p.m. CT across the lake, about three miles north of the Browns Ford public access area.
   The work could take up to two days, depending on the weather.
   Boaters should use extreme caution in this area and watch for and heed the warnings of security boats that will be patrolling the area.
   The work was scheduled for December, but was postponed due to weather.
