EMERALD ISLE — The Carteret County Shore Protection office has formally asked the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to take measures to help ensure that a proposed plan to move the Morehead City port channel away from Shackleford Banks and west toward Fort Macon and Atlantic Beach won’t result in serious erosion of the eastern end of Bogue Banks, the The Carteret County News-Times reported.
In addition, the county has officially suggested that a terminal groin or jetty at Shackleford Banks is a viable alternative method to ensure protection of the port channel.
