Temporary Width Restriction: Mobile Harbor

Notice Number: 24-01

Notice is given to mariners that a temporary width restriction is being placed into effect for Mobile Bar Channel. This restriction is due to a shoal that developed along the east side in the vicinity of red buoy 14 (approximate stations 1990+00 to 1950+00) and stretches from the red toe to the channel centerline. The temporary width restriction will remain in effect until a dredge can be mobilized to the area and clear the shoal. A follow-up navigation bulletin will be published in the next two weeks with additional details regarding this shoal.

For further information, please contact the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Irvington Site Office at (251) 957-6019.

Mariners should exercise extreme caution when transiting this section of the Mobile Bar Channel.
