Maintenance dredging of the Charleston Marina channel and Inner Basin in the Oregon International Port of Coos Bay is expected to begin this week, according to a port announcement made earlier this month.
Dredging, which was expected to start Dec. 17 and take four to six weeks to complete, will take place mainly during day time hours and during ebb tides.
The maintenance work at the marina, which is home to more than 400 slips, will temporarily limit vessel traffic and accessibility.
For more information on accessing the Charleston Marina during that period, call 541-888-2548, or listen to CB Radio channels 13 or 16 for the latest.
