Coast Guard announces change to Sandusky Strait Channel Range Lights

The U.S. Coast Guard is scheduled to change the color of the Sandusky Strait Channel Range Lights from red to white late spring or early summer 2018.

The change originated as a request by commercial shipping and Great Lakes Pilots due to the red range lights aligning with the Bay Point Shoal lighted buoy “2,” which is also red, creating confusion.

Once the change has taken place, a broadcast notice to mariners will commence via VHF-FM channels 16 and 22.

The change will be listed on the District 9 Great Lakes weekly local notice to mariners, located here.

The light list can be located here.
