 Daily Port Update

Subject:Corpus Christi Update
Date:Thursday, February 03, 2005
Priority:Normal
Notice:Air Drafts: Corpus Christi: 138 feet 00 inches -
(Harbor Bridge & Tule Lake Lift Bridge)
Point Comfort: none

Tidal conditions: High Tides: N/a hours

Current Winds on Corpus Christi Ship Channel: N 15 mph

Weather Alert: Historically, during the months of January and February
dense fog has caused delays to vessels transit in the Port of Corpus
Christi.

Closures: Please be advised that a ship traffic closure of the La Quinta
Channel at Kiewit Offshore Services facility is required to permit
loadout of a tower structure onto the H851 launch barge. The barge while
in loadout position, located perpendicular to KOS' bulkhead, will have
its bow blocking the La Quinta Channel, thus requiring closure. This
operation will require a three to four day closure to complete the load
out and maneuver the barge and structure back to KOS' bulkhead. This
closure will not impact the Corpus Christi Ship Channel traffic nor ship
traffic south of KOS' facility on the La Quinta Channel. The operation
is planned to commence on February 5, 2005. It is suggested that those
waterway users with vessel traffic traveling north of KOS' facility on
the La Quinta Channel with schedule critical departures and arrivals
between February 5 and February 9 contact me via email or telephone as
soon as possible. This will allow us to coordinate our activities in an
effort to minimize impacts to users.

In addition to contacting KOS, you are encouraged to contact the MSO of
the Coast Guard with any concerns pertaining to this operation.
