Chesapeake Bay, Elizabeth River, Lafayette River, VA

The Coast Guard was scheduled to change Lafayette River Channel daybeacon 26 (LL 10760) to Lafayette River Channel buoy 26.

The daybeacon was destroyed and this section of the Lafayette River was inaccessible to the Coast Guard’s construction tender to rebuild as a fixed aid to navigation. In an attempt to continue marking this section of the Lafayette River, the temporary, 5th class, unlighted buoy was to become permanent on or about Sept. 1. (NOAA chart 12245)
