The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) informed it has lifted restrictions and enforcement of the regulated navigation area Thursday at Oregon Inlet between Bodie and Pea Islands.
The captain of the port for Sector North Carolina lifted vessel draft restrictions and enforcement of the regulated navigation area at the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge in Oregon Inlet as outlined in 33 Code of Federal Regulations 165.520.
THE USCHG is advising mariners to use caution when navigating Oregon Inlet. The navigational aids in Oregon Inlet and Oregon Inlet Channel are not charted and may not be marking best water due to continually shifting shoals. Consult the Local Notice to Mariners
for the Coast Guard 5th District to obtain the latest positions and statuses of aids to navigation.
The USCG said it will continue to monitor the conditions of the waterway and update the regulated navigation area as necessary.
