NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV-AP) -

A meeting involving the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District will be held Tuesday night after being rescheduled last month.

The meeting will take place from 6-8 p.m. at the McGavock High School Auditorium located at 3150 McGavock Pike.

This is the final of four public meetings in Tennessee and Kentucky that gives the public a chance to respond to plans to restrict access to hazardous waters adjacent to Corps locks and dams on the Cumberland River and its tributaries.

Other meetings have already been held in Grand Rivers, KY, Baxter, TN, and Somerset, KY.
