Significant Shoaling in Bogue Inlet Main Navigation Channel

The main navigation channel in Bogue Inlet is shoaling significantly in several locations, and the aids to navigation are not reliable.  The US Coast Guard has essentially “closed the inlet”, which means that boaters use the inlet at their own risk and should not rely on the aids to navigation.   

The US Army Corps of Engineers is scheduled to dredge the inlet beginning on April 18, but the Town will be reaching out to the Corps to see if it is possible to begin Bogue Inlet dredging earlier than April 18.  It is anticipated that the aids to navigation will be repositioned upon completion of dredging activities.
