Repairs on Merrimack under way

ADVERTISEMENT

The U.S. Coast Guard has released a notice that the Merrimack River North Jetty in Salisbury, Mass., and the South Jetty in Newburyport, Mass. are undergoing scheduled maintenance and repair through April 2016.

The CG has asked mariners to use extreme caution in the area, reduce wake, and transit at the slowest safe speed, especially at times of reduced visibility.

“The Number Four fixed Aid to Navigation Tower and Light at the seaward end of the jetty, and the Rough Bar Guide Light on the inland end of the jetty will be temporary removed during North Jetty repairs,” the notice said. “The duration of the temporary removal will be published in the Local Notice to Mariners and during scheduled “Notice to Mariners” broadcasts on VHF-16.

“During the year-long construction project, multiple barges and support vessels will be anchored/spud down, or transiting in and around the navigational channel from buoy Number Seven to the entrance of the Merrimack River. These barges may partially obstruct the navigational channels causing the width of the channel to decrease.”

For emergencies, contact Coast Guard Station Merrimack River via VHF-16 or 978-465-0731.  For non-emergency questions or concerns, contact Mark Cutter at Coast Guard Sector Boston, 617-447-1620, mark.e.cutter@uscg.mil.
