Date:Wednesday, January 10, 2018

Subject: RESTRICTIONS DUE TO ICE CONDITIONS IN PROVIDENCE AND THE CAPE COD CANAL

Narragansett Bay restrictions: The 9 buoy has dragged into the ship channel at the southern end of Rumstick Neck Reach. The channel is therefore blocked to ship traffic north of this point for vessel transit to or from Providence. The USCG advises that they will not have the assets in place to clear the channel and reposition the buoy until Thursday.

Cape Cod Canal restrictions: Canal Control advised that currently, due to ice, tug and barge units carrying petroleum are restricted to daylight only and fair tide. All other vessels are on a case by case basis and are advises to contact the canal well in advance of intended canal transits for updates.
