Corpus Christi Ship channel draft: 45-00 ft sw

Point Comfort Ship channel draft: 33-00 ft sw

Good Afternoon All,

Please see attached MSIB 33-19, from the Captain of the Port Corpus Christi which reads, "Dredge CAROLINA will be spudded down in the center of the Humble Basin to La Quinta Junction portion of the Corpus Christi Ship Channel, in vicinity of the Ferry Crossing, approximate position 27°50'31.13"N, 097°04'11.28"W each day September 11, 2019 through September 17, 2019 between the hours of 2000 and 0800.  To facilitate safe dredging in this area, I have established a safety zone for 1000' feet around Dredge CAROLINA from 2000 through 0800 each day September 11, 2019 through September 17, 2019. During times of the safety zone, only Dredge CAROLINA, small vessels, TXDOT ferries, and inland barge traffic may transit this area; deep draft vessels, articulated tug and barges, ocean going barges, and other vessels restricted in their ability to maneuver shall not pass through this area without permission from the U.S. Coast Guard, and coordination with Aransas Corpus Christi Pilots and Port of Corpus Christi Harbormasters Offices. Small vessels, TXDOT ferries, and inland barges should be aware that while the safety zone is in place, only 200' of open channel will be available on the red side, and therefore vessels should ensure no meeting situations occur in vicinity of the dredge. Dredge CAROLINA will monitor VHF Channels 12 and 16.

Concerned parties with urgent concerns can contact the U.S. Coast Guard Sector/ Air Station Corpus Christi Command Center at 361-939-0450; or for non-urgent questions and concerns, email"
