GATE REPAIRS - Caernarvon Sector Gate

Notice Number: 20268/MVN 22-57
Date: 05/17/2022 07:00 thru 05/27/2022 19:00 CDT

Beginning at 7:00 a.m. on 17 May 2022 and continuing through 7:00 p.m. on 27 May 2022, the Caernarvon Sector Gate will be closed to navigation due to necessary upper hinge repairs being performed by a Hired Labor Unit.

Mariners are advised that there will be a floating plant on-site that will be obstructing the channel during repairs.

The navigation channel between the Caernarvon Sector Gates will be restricted due to the half open positioning of the sector gates.

No vessels will be allowed to pass through the structure unless coordinating with the Hired Labor Unit and dependent on diving operations. Mariners shall navigate through the structure at their slowest safe speed to minimize wake and proceed with caution.

The M/V SHALLOW DRAFT 17 can be contacted on VHF Marine Channel 13.
