Road closed, take the boat to work

A popular stretch of U.S. 129 in Tennessee known as the "Tail of the Dragon" remains closed after a rock slide crashed into the highway on March 14. Last week, the state closed an 11-mile section of the highway extending from the site of the slide near Chilhowee Dam all the way to the North Carolina border.

Employees at the dam traded the rocky road for a pontoon boat that transports workers from the Chilhowee Dam to the power station near the Calderwood Dam.
