Bridges. Highway bridge near Soddy, Tennessee, where, in cooperation with work relief agencies and the governing body of the county, TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) developed an arm of Chickamauga Lake for recreational uses

Chickamauga Dam and powerhouse. Two views of visitors' reception room which overlooks Chickamauga Lake from a slight platform at one end, and contains reception desk and entrance to elevator and stairs. Map in mural form over reception desk is used by guard in explaining location and significance of project. Switchyard can be seen through glazed doors of vestibule; on opposite side, entire wall underneath the dedication test (1936-Built for the People of the United States of America-1940) consists of glass and opens view of generator hall to visitors

Chickamauga Dam and powerhouse. Hall off reception room which gives access to a good view of the tailrace through a window, thus making it possible for visitors to observe all essential parts of the project (generator hall, switchyard, reservoir, tailrace) from either the reception room or the hall. It also gives access to the elevator, the main stair, toilets, and to a promenade roof deck over the lower electrical bay of the powerhouse (foor at end). The decreasing height of the ceiling was necessitated by structural considerations ad was exploited for effect. Floor is terrazzo; walls, glazed structural tile; ceiling, plaster

Bridges. Vehicular and pedestrian bridge across the diversion channel of North Chickamauga Creek. Continuous steel girder construction with concrete piers and abutments, top of girder placed at a level to form an outside curb on top of sidewalk. Chickamauga overlook building in right background

Recreational structures. Big Ridge Lake. Diving tower, beach and bath house may be seen in the background. This forty-five acre body of water has proved an attractive recreation spot for thousands of visitors since it was first opened to the public in May 1934. Encircled by the 3,500 acres of wooded hills in Big Ridge Park, the resort is provided with a boathouse, bath house, a public lodge, nineteen modern vacation cabins and a beach with a specially constructed pool for children. Located on the eastern boundary of Norris reservoir about twenty-five miles northeast of Knoxville, Tennessee, the lake was formed by constuction of a small dam across one of the arms of the reservoir. This recreation area and the 3,800 acre Noris Park near Norris Dam were developed by the National Park Service and the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) in cooperation with the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). This is one of many comparable parks on TVA reservoirs, most of which are in use and greatly enjoyed by tourists as well as residents of the surrounding area who previously had few, if any, outdoor opportunites for ourtdoor sport and recreation. The completion of other recreational parks has been prevented by the war

Chickamauga Dam and powerhouse. General view of spillway with powerhouse in background. On account of flooding hazard entire powerhouse built of concrete. Main generator hall in high portion, electical controls and offices in downstream bay; projecting wing houses visitors' facilities and air conditioning. Roof of downstream bay developed as overlook terrace

Chickamauga Dam and powerhouse. Land side entrance to Chickamauga Powerhouse. Visitors and employees enter from the parking space which corresponds to the top level of the generating plant. Once inside, the almost continuous glass wall between the reception room and the generating hall gives the magnificent view of generators deep below. Signs in front are temporary, prohibiting access for the duration of the war. Note gantry cranes at right which operate spillway gates and are also used for the transfer of heavy equipment parts from rail, barge, or truck to the powerhouse

Recreational structures. Another view of concession building near Chickamauga Dam (compare with K 2411). Grading and planting unfinished. Boat harbors are built by TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) on well-sheltered lake arms close to centers of population. Concession buildings serve as supply headquarters and also accommodate large numbers of visitors who come to watch fun

Visitors' buildings. The visitors' reception building at the north end of Chickamauga Dam performs the same functions as described for the one at Pickwick. Its overlook terrace is partly covered by a canopy roof and projects toward the chamber of the navigation lock for a more favorable view of the locking operation, which is of great interest to visitors. The guard cubicle which appears on the left of the terrace is temporary for the duration

Roof is carried by rigid steel arches which spring from crane rail level; steel purlins, exposed precast concrete slab. Windows of hall are glass brick for insulation. Translucent plastic discs suspended from standard highboy lighting units conceal view or direct reflection of filaments and reflect spill light onto ceiling, thus generally brightening the space. Floor is ceramic tile; walls, glazed structural tile up to crame rail, exposed concrete above

Large glass panels permit observation by visitors and view of plant by control room operators. Ceiling of control room is assymmetric barrel vault with acoustic tile surface; all light is indirect from reflectors above low soffit along front of room. In more recent installations, control equipment is gray instead of black to reduce eye fatigue by lessening contrast
