Port Houston reopens terminals to truck traffic

Port Houston is reopening its two largest public container terminals to commercial trucks after closing them Tuesday due to a computer hardware failure.

“Bayport and Barbours Cut Container Terminals are planning to open [Thursday] at 3 p.m. to truck traffic. Check back for another update soon about final gate operation decisions,” port officials tweeted Thursday.

Port of Houston Executive Director Roger Guenther said the port experienced a “major failure of the storage devices that support all applications used to operate both Barbours Cut and Bayport container terminals” prior to opening Tuesday at 7 a.m., according to a letterposted on the port’s website on Wednesday.
