OCEAN CITY, Md.- Dredging work has been put on hold in Ocean City’s inlet.
Chris Gardner with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said the Currituck left the inlet Friday morning to return to its yard in North Carolina to undergo routine maintenance. The maintenance was pushed earlier than originally scheduled.
However, some of the planned inlet dredging was completed.
The Currituck and her crew removed roughly 1,000 cubic yards of sediment from a trouble spot between buoys 11 and 12, Gardner said.
The Currituck is expected to return to resume work in about two weeks, Gardner said.
