Norris Freeway, located near the heart of East Tennessee, is a byway steeped in American innovation history. This byway passes over Norris Dam, the location of which was selected by the Tennessee Valley Authority, to control the flooding in the Clinch and Powell River watershed. This byway begins in Rocky Top (once known as “Coal Creek”) and heads southeast to the unincorporated community of Halls. Parts of Anderson County, Campbell County, and Knox County are traversed along the route. With the beautiful scenery of the Tennessee Valley and state parks, travelers along the Norris Freeway can marvel at the innovation of the Norris Dam.
