Intersection of AICW, New River and New River Inlet

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 05-28-2009

Intersection of AICW, New River and New River Inlet
(Statute Mile 246, North Carolina ICW)

The Problem: Even though this problem stretch was dredged in late 2012, as of May, 2013, shoaling is beginning to reappear at the four way intersection with New River and New River Inlet, in the vicinity of markers #72A and #72B.

The Solution: For the moment, favor the “red” (northern) side of the AICW channel between markers #72A and #72B. Watch for relocated markers or temporary, uncharted markers placed to warn of new encroachments by the surrounding shallows. Captains piloting vessels which draw more than 5 feet would be wise to time their passage for mid to high tide.
