The industry dustpan dredge WALLACE McGEORGE continues working on a channel maintenance assignment at Alhambra Crossing (Mile 190.5 Above Head of Passes [AHP]). 

The NOBRA and Federal Pilots intend to have the White Castle Anchorage cleared of vessels by 0600 hours October 12, 2021 and to keep it clear until dredging operations (Alhambra) are completed.  The closure of the anchorage is expected to last approximately one week (October 12 to October 19).

The White Castle Anchorage (Mile 191.1 AHP to Mile 190.4 AHP) will be off limits for vessel usage beginning at 0600 hours on Tuesday, October 12, 2021.

The closure of the White Castle Anchorage is utilized to promote navigational safety for the dustpan dredges and vessels transiting this reach of the Ship Channel.
