TEXAS CITY — City officials on Thursday reopened a portion of the Texas City Dike that’s been closed since Saturday because of the heavy fuel oil spill in Galveston Bay.

The city’s Homeland Security Director Bruce Clawson said the dike is open to the public from the entrance to the Welch boat ramp. Access to Dike Beach and the end of the dike is off-limits.
