USCG halts nav aids in NC

ADVERTISEMENT

Coast Guard Sector North Carolina has temporarily discontinued 14 navigation aids in the vicinity of Hatteras Inlet due to shoaling.

Recent hydrographic surveys indicate shoaling in Hatteras Inlet between Buoy 9 and Buoy 13.  The 14 navigational aids in this section of the waterway do not accurately mark navigable water due to limited channel depth and reduced channel width, the Coast Guard said in a statement.

Mariners are advised to use the preferred alternate routes known as Barney Slough and South Ferry Channel to enter or depart the ocean inlet.

Due to the potential for increased shoaling and changes in channel depths and widths in the Hatteras Inlet Channel, use of regional and local navigation information is highly encouraged.

The affected navigation aids can be found on Hatteras Inlet Channel chart 11555. For questions or concerns, contact Sector North Carolina at +1 910-343-3880.
