Update: Port of Corpus Christi update to port condition Modified Zulu for the Corpus Christi Inner Harbor.

Coast Guard captain of the port in Corpus Christi implemented Port Condition Modified Zulu for the Port of Corpus Christi Inner Harbor.

Modified Zulu allows tug and barges with drafts not exceeding 20-feet currently in the Corpus Christi Inner Harbor to transit freely within the Inner Harbor with no requirements to seek the COTP permission to move.

“Mariners are to proceed with caution as navigational ads may be missing or off station. All other portions of the captain of the port zone remains in Port Condition Zulu unless they have already been cleared by the COTP,” the Coast Guard said.

“I applaud the incredible work of the Port of Corpus Christi, the Army Corp of Engineers and all industry facilities working hard and collaborating in this process,” said Capt. Tony Hahn, COTP of Corpus Christi. “This is a first step but also a very important one towards restoring full capability of the port.”

Harvey, now a tropical storm, has resulted in significant flooding and impacts for ports along the Texas coast.

“The Coast Guard along with the ASCOE and TGLO understand the international and global significance of the Gulf Coast ports and are currently conducting surveys and thorough port assessments prior to reopening,” the Coast Guard said in a statement Tuesday.
