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.

Phil, somehow I have missed this bit of information. Is this the last part of the old bridge to be demolished?

They have been blasting the old pilings for months now. Every month or so they close the bridge long enough to blast and clear away the debris from the roadway.
The new bridge is fine, tho some get a little dizzy if you look sideways at the edge of the wall as you drive by. Seems it is "wavy" and makes some folks sick.
