Sailing from Galveston on Rhapsody 8/26/07--Traffic Delay
All lanes between Galveston Island and the mainland will be closed on 8/26/07 for about an hour from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. according to an article on KHOU.COM. Works crews are going to be using explosives to demolish the old causeway. For anyone coming into Galveston on Sunday, you might want to plan around this closure.

Gambler, Not sailing tomorrow but have sailed from Galveston twice before. You are a real "good Samaritan" for posting this. People sailing from Galveston NEED this kind of info! Has the potential to be a real problem.
They have been doing this now for weeks. It was not a problem for our 4/22/07 cruise because they were done working before the traffic coming and going from the port had started. They have been good about trying not to disrupt the cruisers, you gotta give them credit for that.
