The Corps Nashville District says it has suspended unescorted public access to the Wilson Lock in Alabama, where the public could before line up to watch barge traffic lock through. It’s also rolling back plans to open access to Tennessee River locks at Nickajack and Guntersville downstream from Chattanooga. A corps spokesman says the Tennessee Valley Authority agreed with the increased terror risk assessment.
