The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will be completing navigation maintenance dredging in Bogue Inlet in early April in an effort to promote a safe navigation channel for the spring and summer boating season, Town of Emerald Isle, North Carolina, said in its latest release.
The dredging area includes the connector channel and across the ocean bar.
The Corps will be establishing a new, more central location for the connecting channel, and the U.S. Coast Guard will be relocating the aids to navigation to follow the new route.
Work is expected to be completed by mid or late April.
Although this cleanup project is conducted by the Federal Government, it is funded exclusively by a partnership between the state and area local governments, the town said.
