Santa Cruz harbor restrictions eased

SAN FRANCISCO – The Coast Guard eased restrictions to the Santa Cruz Harbor Sunday, after safety assessments were completed for the area.

The southern half of Santa Cruz harbor, the harbor west of the Murray Street Bridge, is determined to be safe for vessels with a draft of 6 feet or less to transit. The determination was made after a National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration survey vessel performed a scan of the harbor sea floor, and safety assessments were completed in the area.

Access to the upper harbor is still restricted to all vessels not involved in the response efforts.
