Salvage teams and the Army Corps of Engineers have positively identified the location of the sunken Dredge Tender NICHOLAS on the western (greenside) toe of the Mobile Ship Channel just south of Light 69.

According to the U.S. Coast, Sector Mobile, Marine Safety and Security Information Bulletin No.19-14, the Captain of the Port has lifted the previous vessel size restrictions imposed in the MSSB 18-14.

The Mobile Ship Channel is still restricted to one-way traffic in the vicinity of the wrecked vessels and all vessel traffic is to keep well to the east (red side) of the channel in the vicinity of this location until further notice. All mariners are to use extreme caution and safe speed while transiting Light 69 and those vessels conducting salvage operations in that vicinity.

Over the course of the next few days, the Coast Guard will continue its oversight salvage operations. Future channel restrictions may be required to provide the salvage vessels space needed to affect safe salvage operations.
