Hatteras-Ocracoke Dredging Scheme About to Begin

In the following days, the North Carolina Ferry Division will begin dredging work on a portion of the channel used for the Hatteras-Ocracoke ferry route that was affected by Hurricane Matthew, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s latest announcement.

Because of the work and the tides, passengers using that route may experience sporadic service interruptions over the next two weeks, NCDOT also stated.

Preparations for these operations are already underway, with the actual dredging is scheduled to begin next week, on Monday, October 31.

As conditions in the channel continually change, the route schedule could be affected on a day-to-day basis.

This very important cleanup work will be conducted with the NCDOT’s new cutter suction dredger Manteo.

The 154-foot pipeline dredger, designed and built by DSC Dredge, keeps North Carolina’s state-maintained intercostal ferry channels clear, from the Cape Fear River near Wilmington to Currituck Sound near the North Carolina-Virginia state line.

The dredger also maintains an emergency route between Stumpy Point and Rodanthe, south of Nags Head – the route used when North Carolina Highway 12 is out of service due to a storm or other event.
