Barge Collision Temporarily Closes Bridge from Aransas Pass

ARANSAS PASS - Police closed off the Dale Miller Bridge from Aransas Pass to Port Aransas due to a barge colliding with a support column.

It took about an hour for inspectors from the Texas Department of Transportation and the Coast Guard to arrive at the scene.

As they assessed the damage, the Port Aransas Ferry ceased operations. That stretch of Highway 361 only runs between the Dale Miller bridge and the ferry landing.

As of 6:15pm, TxDOT started allowing traffic to cross the bridge and the Port Aransas Ferry landing resumed operations.
