Feb. 16 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Coast Guard has re-opened a two-mile section of the Intracoastal Waterway near Corpus Christi, Texas.

A channel was opened within the last hour after a tug with two barges ran aground at about 6:15 a.m. local time today, said Lt. Steven Vanderlaske. The incident occured at Port O’Connor, Texas, about 100 miles (161 kilometers) north of Corpus Christi.

The tug Bolivar Point was towing the barges with about 50,000 barrels of alkylate when it struck a boathouse on the northern shore of the waterway, according a statement on the Coast Guard website. There were no reports of injuries or pollution in the incident.
