DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) -- The Army Corps of Engineers plans a public meeting Tuesday on the project to raise the levee protecting the city of Devils Lake from the flooding body of water with the same name.

Work has already begun on the $21 million first phase of the project. Refinements to the embankment alignments for the second and third phases are ongoing.

A portion of Phase 2 is scheduled to be advertised for bids at the end of June, with the remainder advertised in November.

The corps might eventually raise the entire 8-mile, three-section dike up to at least 1,468 feet, which would be done in several phases at an estimated cost of up to $113 million.

Tuesday's meeting is 6-8 p.m. in the Ramsey County Courthouse basement in Devils Lake.
