  • Incorporating minor bend easings at the double bends in the Bar Channel approach to the Bay Channel;
  • Widening the Bay Channel from 400ft to 500ft from the mouth of Mobile Bay northward for 3 nautical miles to provide a two-way traffic area for passing;
  • Expanding the Choctaw Pass Turning Basin 250ft to the south (at a depth of 50ft) to better accommodate safe turning of the design vessel and other large vessels.
