  1. The Dredge Hurley will arrive at mile 102.5 UMR on the afternoon of 30 November 2022 to begin dredging operation from mile 103 to 102 UMR.

When dredging, removed river bottom material is pumped through a pontoon pipeline, which may be crossing the channel, and is placed outside of the navigation channel. Mariners should be on the lookout for tender boats, barges, small survey boats, and pipeline when transiting the dredge area.
  3. The Dredge Hurley may be contacted on Marine VHF-FM radio channels 13 and 16. Mariners are urged to transit at their slowest safe speed to minimize wake and proceed with caution after passing arrangements have been made with the Dredge Hurley.
