Army Corps of Engineers proposes danger zone off Guam

HAGATNA, Guam — The Army Corps of Engineers has proposed creating a new surface danger zone that would restrict boat traffic along Guam's northwest coast when a firing range is in use.

The Pacific Daily News reports the zone supporting the military's small arms firing range at Finegayan would extend about 2.4 miles (3.9 kilometers) from shore and about 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) from end to end.

According to the proposed rule published in the Federal Register, vessels would not be allowed to stop or loiter in the zone when the range is in use. The boats would be allowed to quickly travel through the zone.

The military plans to display a red flag during the day and use a strobe light at night when the range is active.
