TEXAS CITY — Galveston Bay is open to all marine traffic, according to a statement from the leaders of efforts to clean up an oil spill that shutdown one of the nation’s biggest ports for several days.

The Texas City Y Response Unified Command announced Thursday night that vessels can enter and exit the bay. The only restrictions remaining require all vessels to stay a safe distance from and maintain safe speeds around oil cleanup operations. Vessels must also avoid any areas with visible or sheening oil in the water.
