United States Navy Restricted Area, SUPSHIP Bath Detachment Mobile, Mobile, AL
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is adding regulations to establish a restricted area around the AUSTAL, USA shipbuilding facility located in Mobile, Alabama, because of the sensitive nature of the on-going and potential future activities at that facility. The Supervisor of Shipbuilding, Conversion and Repair (SUPERVISOR), located in Bath, Maine is responsible for United States Navy shipbuilding activities at AUSTAL, USA located in Mobile, Alabama. The restricted area will be used for on-going construction when vessels are placed in the water. The restricted area is essential to protect persons and property from the dangers associated with the operation and safeguard the area from accidents, sabotage and other subversive acts.
