Houston Ship Channel could reopen to two-way traffic as barges being removed after collision

Salvage crews on Wednesday began removing two gasoline barges damaged in a weekend collision with a deep-draft vessel that restricted traffic in the Houston Ship Channel, officials said.

The removal of the Kirby Corp-operated barges could be completed by midday Wednesday, according to the Bayport Channel Collision Response, a group overseeing cleanup and salvage operations.
