The Sabine-Neches Waterway in southeast Texas has opened to limited traffic following a weekend oil spill when two vessels collided.

The U.S. Coast Guard said the waterway next to Port Arthur reopened Wednesday.

On Saturday, 462,000 gallons of light crude oil spilled into the water from the Eagle Otome. The 800-foot tanker collided with a towboat pushing two barges. The damaged Otome was moved to the Sunoco oil terminal in Beaumont on Tuesday evening.

The Coast Guard says about 534,000 gallons of an oil and water mixture have been recovered. Work continues to recover oil.
