The Coast Guard is advising all mariners to exercise caution when transiting through the Basnight bridge due to “extreme shoaling” near Oregon Inlet aid #17.
The latest Army Corps of Engineers hydrographic survey displays the areas in which the shallow depths are occurring, with certain spots appearing as low as 3 feet.
If you have any questions, contact Coast Guard Station Oregon Inlet via Ch 16 or at 252-441-6260.
