US: more dredging needed for Hatteras Inlet ferry routeProject Updates // January 20, 2017
The Outer Banks Voice reports that the North Carolina Ferry System’s dredge Manteo will return to Hatteras Inlet to repair severe shoaling in the ferry channel near the South Dock Terminal.
Dredging will likely begin on 22 January, with service interruptions on the Hatteras-Ocracoke route possible.
"The dredge cleared the channel back in November,” said Ferry Division Director Ed Goodwin. “But in the past two months, rapid shoaling has nearly filled it back in. We need to make these emergency repairs immediately while we pursue a more permanent solution.”
