LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) - The Lake Havasu National Refuge Complex has created a safety zone to help reduce the number of boat collisions at the Interstate 40 bridge on the Colorado River.
Authorities say the expansion of commercial development at the Topock 66 Marina is expected to greatly increase boating traffic in the area.
That has sparked safety concerns from the Arizona Game and Fish Department and Lake Havasu Marine Association.
A no wake zone has been created with two boundary lines of regulatory buoys approximately 700 feet north and 900 feet south of the I-40 bridge.
Watercraft operators are required to be at wake-less speed throughout the zone, which includes the waterway to and around the Topock 66 Marina.
