Closures: Bay Ltd. is scheduled to load out on the 29th at our dock
facility(BAY LTD). The closure will commence on Saturday at 0700hrs at
which time we turn our barge perpendicular to our dock. After speaking
with the Coast Guard we have decided to limit the channel in our area to
barge traffic only and only at slow bell. No ships will be allowed to
pass during our loading operations.
Also during offloading operations at Texas Dock & Rail on Sunday the 30th
at 0700hrs, all barge and ship traffic will need to proceed at slow bell
until our operations cease. I will notify the Coast Guard an the
Harbormasters office as soon as all operations cease.
