Expect delays Tuesday at Lake Tillery

On Tuesday, Duke Energy is installing new power lines across Lake Tillery. The project is a large and dangerous undertaking and public safety is a priority, according to the Wildlife Resources Commission.

Wildlife law enforcement officers from the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will be controlling the area by boat patrol. Boaters are advised to expect delays at Highway 27 and Garrison Bridge.

The complete removal and reinstallation of high energy power lines by Duke Energy is expected to last 8 a.m.-2 p.m. at Lake Tillery, just south of Garrison Bridge.

All traffic will be stopped from entering the work zone for 30-minute intervals throughout the day. Once an individual line is pulled and secured, officers will allow traffic to flow until work on the next line begins.
