The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recently completed needed navigation dredging in Bogue Inlet, both through the connecting channel and across the ocean bar, Town of Emerald Isle, North Carolina, said in its latest release.

In an effort to follow the deepest water and most efficient route, and also to promote a stable channel location away from The Point, the official navigation channel has been shifted to a more central alignment, the announcement stated.

The U.S. Coast Guard is expected to reset the aids to navigation in early May to more clearly delineate the channel, thereby providing a safer navigation route for area boaters.

Recent dredging efforts were funded by a combination of state and local funds, and performed by USACE under a memorandum of agreement.

In the absence of federal funds, the Town of Emerald Isle, along with Carteret County, Cape Carteret, Cedar Point, Swansboro and Onslow County, provided local funding for the project.
