Phillips 66 Guidelines for Weekend Barge Traffic
Posted on Apr 25th, 2019
Please note these guidelines are dated from Aug 2015.
From the first weekend in May - Sat May 4th, through October 1st, and on the second weekend in December (Christmas Boat Parade), a curfew will be imposed.
Only in cases where unforeseen weather conditions, mechanical difficulties, or some similar cause, may transit be allowed within the curfew hours. These allowances require explicit permission from the Phillips 66 Dock Operator.
It’s up to all recreational boaters and commercial mariners to be vigilant observers of the risks in operating on the San Bernard, which we share. The Corps of Engineers maintains the San Bernard as a commercially navigable channel and the company's restrictions to their operations that have been ongoing for 60+ years are entirely voluntary. Continued awareness is everyone’s responsibility.
