Marine Aids to Navigation
​​​​​​​Transportation Engineering ​​> Traffic Signs & Markings > Marine Aids to Navigation
The Signing & Marking Division maintains approximately 2,000 pilings, day boards, solar light beacons, slow speed zones and buoys throughout Charlotte County on county maintained waterways. These are maintained per the guidelines set forth by the US Coast Guard and Florida Wildlife Commission to maintain the safe navigation of vessels on the waters of Charlotte County. There are four entities that maintain aids to navigation in Charlotte County. They are the US Coast Guard, the Florida Wildlife Commission, Charlotte County and the City of Punta Gorda. All of these agencies have various areas in the County that they maintain. If you see a problem with an aid to navigation and do not know who to contact, please let us know and if it is not Charlotte County’s responsibility we will pass the information on to the correct agency.
The Signing & Marking Division also removes hazardous debris from local navigable waterways such as docks that have broken away from properties, trees that have fallen in the waterways or submerged debris from storms etc.
