The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone around the upper

The safety zone will encompass all waters of Reedy Point South Anchorage
No.3 upriver of a line drawn between positions 39 deg. 33’7.5″N, 75 deg.
33’2.0″W and 39 deg. 33’8.8N”, 75 deg. 32’31.8W, as charted on NOAA chart

While the Dredge ESSEX is operating within the area, vessels heading north
through the Delaware River with intent to transit the Chesapeake & Delaware
(C&D) Canal will be re-directed through this portion of the anchorage.
Anchoring within this portion of the anchroage will not be permitted while
the temporary safety zone is in effect.

Vessels heading south through the Delaware River with intent to pass the
Dredge ESSEX should call the Dredge ESSEX at least 30 minutes prior to
passage. The Dredge ESSEX will monitor channels 13 and 16 and can be
contacted by phone at 757-353-0455. Mariners are cautioned to remain a safe
distance away from the dredge, buoys, cables, pipelines, barges, derricks,
wires, and related equipment and are urged to operate at minimum steerage
