Citrus County has been working closely with the United States Coast Guard for the past several months for the purpose of improving the navigational waterways of the Homosassa River.
One of the improvements suggested was to install “informational” markers at Hells Gate notifying boaters of the narrow channel ahead.
On January 17, 2017, Citrus County completed the installation of these “informational” markers. New pilings and signs were installed on both ends of Hells Gate to notify boaters of the narrow channel ahead. Citrus County continues to work with the Coast Guard to further improve navigation on the Homosassa River.
