Default Galveston bridge closed Sunday morninf 7:30 - 9am

For those going to Galveston Sunday Feb 10th, the bridge will be closed so they can blow up the old pilings from the old bridge.

It will effect anyone coming from Houston during that period of time. They are supose to be don at 9 but they have been known to be done later. Sounds like they are trying to get this done at night. http://galvestondailynews.com/story....545f57966c90b3

I would advise anyone going on a cruise to be on the Island the night before. They don't want to have to spend the time it would take to drive all the way around Galveston bay and then come up the Bolivar peninsula and take the ferry across or drive all the way around to come up the west side of the Island and come through the San Louis Pass there is a toll bridge there. Either way would add Hours to the trip. So while they could get to the Island two other ways it would not be advisable.
