While the Hatteras-Ocracoke Ferry was suspended in mid-January for severe shoaling, now the Coast Guard is helping the state dig their way out of a transportation problem.
On Tuesday, the Coast Guard started putting up temporary navigation aids for a substitute route for the ferry.
The Coast Guard said they will place 14 navigational aids, marking a temporary channel until the regular route is dredged and navigable.
The original route work is scheduled to be finished by March 31st.
