Entrance Channel Dredge Update - February 8, 2019

Entrance channel dredging was placed on hold earlier in the week to address a broken section of cross channel pipeline.  The crew successfully repaired the portion of damaged pipe and resumed dredging on Thursday, February 7. In an effort to address shoaled areas in the entrance channel, the crew will perform a full day of dredging on Sunday, February 10, 2019.

While conditions remain shallow in the federal navigation channel, mariners are advised not to transit the channel unless tide and sea conditions are suitable for their vessel’s draft.  Prior to attempting to transit the channel, please review the most recent sounding.
