Marine Advisory – Hayward Canal Dredging

CHARLOTTE COUNTY – The Hayward Canal dredging project will begin Monday, June 6 and be completed in November. This project could cause delays in boating traffic through the channel. Boaters using the El Jobean boat ramp and Hayward Canal may experience delays and allow extra time when planning to travel through this area. Boaters are encouraged to choose alternate routes.

The Public Works Department reminds boaters to remain alert at all times and to exercise caution when traveling in the vicinity of dredging zones. For information visit the project's webpage on the Charlotte County website (link below).
