Coast Guard Captain of the Port Reopens Multiple River Bars

(ASTORIA, Ore.) - The Coast Guard Captain of the Port, Sector Columbia River, reopened the Columbia River, Yaquina Bay, Oregon, Coos Bay, Oregon, Umpqua River, Oregon, and Grays Harbor, Washington, bar entrances Tuesday, with restrictions to recreational and uninspected passenger vessels.

The closures of the Depoe Bay, Oregon, Tillamook Bay, Oregon, and Siuslaw River, Oregon, bar entrances are still in effect due to hazardous conditions.

The remaining bar closures are for all vessels and any request to transit the bars prior to re-opening must be approved by the Captain of the Port, Sector Columbia River. Mariners may contact the Coast Guard on VHF-FM Channel 16 or Sector Columbia River by telephone at (503) 861-6211 for further information or to request crossing.

The Coast Guard will be re-evaluating the bar closures on an ongoing basis and expects to re-open these waterways as soon as the offshore weather improves.

The Coast Guard understands the effects these closures have on commerce and will make every effort to reopen these waterways as soon as they are considered safe for navigation.
