Breakwater construction will generally proceed from the southwest, where the first breakwater will be installed, to the northeast. Partially constructed breakwaters may or may not be visible above water. Construction barges will be moored in the vicinity of the construction zone and will be marked with lights on four corners. Anchors will also be marked with lighted buoys. During work hours, divers will be present in the water. Mariners and recreational craft should avoid this area and keep their closest point of approach at least 0.5 nautical miles (3,308 feet) from buoys, lighted posts, and barges. Please refer to the Local Notice to Mariners for more information.
