Dredging set to start in North Carolina

Mariners could encounter delays as Army Corps of Engineers dredging operations are scheduled to begin at the North Carolina State Port Docks, the Radio Island Barge Docks and the Aviation Fuel Docks in Morehead City from about July 10 through Oct. 31.

The dredging operations are being conducted to restore the harbor to a projected depth of 35 to 45 feet, depending on the location.

Dredge operators will monitor VHF channels 13 and 16 to coordinate passage for boaters. They’re asked to call the dredge 30 minutes prior to passage and are reminded to stay clear of the dredge, barges, derricks and operating wires while transiting at a no-wake speed.
