DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) — A Mississippi River port in West Tennessee is scheduled for completion in December and officials toured its progress this week.

The State Gazette (http://bit.ly/NlZvYX)_reported the Port of Cates Landing board of directors and elected officials were on hand Wednesday to view construction as the board met.

The slack water port will handle barge traffic, improving bulk cargo handling for northwest Tennessee. It is being built in Lake County.

Port Authority Chairman Jimmy Williamson said the project is running on schedule and under budget.

Construction of the port is being funded by a TIGER II grant, which is a joint state-federal funding mechanism.
