U.S. Coast Guard: no timetable to reopen NY Harbor's Arthur Kill

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. Coast Guard has no timetable for the reopening of the Arthur Kill waterway, a key stretch of water in the New York Harbor lined with oil logistics infrastructure, a spokesman said on Thursday.

The waterway is closed due to a diesel spill from a nearby fuel terminal. Debris also presents a hazard to navigation, Coast Guard Petty Officer Eric Swanson said.
