FYI: Read if Going to Galveston Sunday

Causeway demolition to begin
Traffic will be stopped for about a half-hour Sunday


Copyright 2006 Houston Chronicle

The first of 10 underwater blasts to demolish piers that supported part of the former Galveston Causeway is scheduled for 8 a.m. Sunday.

Traffic on the remaining half of the old causeway and the completed half of a new one being built alongside it will be halted for about 30 minutes, said Texas Department of Transportation spokesman Norm Wigington.

After the demolition, Wigington said, the concrete rubble will be removed from the floor of the bay and reused.

Motorists and boaters are asked to avoid the area during the demolition, which Wigington said will not be visible above the water.

Observers will be stationed around the site to alert construction crews if sea turtles or other marine life wanders into the blast zone, he said.

The demolition comes near the midpoint of the four-year, $136 million project to replace the causeway with a new one with increased capacity.
