The comment period was initially scheduled to end on December 19, 2016. However, the comment period has been extended and will now end on January 18, 2017. USACE is hosting two open house style public meetings to provide information and gather public feedback on the DSEIS. The open house events will be held in Cape Girardeau, MO and Alton, IL. They will provide information on the Corps of Engineers’ river engineering mission on the Middle Mississippi River with subject matter experts available to answer questions.
