My lingering suspicion was correct. The next underwater demolition (and accompanying 30-minute bridge closure) at the Galveston Causeway has been pushed back; it’s taking place in two weeks, on August 13 at 8 a.m. and not this Sunday. So if you had plans to traverse Galveston Bay Sunday morning, go forth, unimpeded by the threat of blasts or road closures.
I was wrong about one thing, though. I thought the delay might have something to do with gnarly weather we had this past week. It sounds like instead, they’re planning to double up, taking out larger stretches of the old span’s foundations at each road closure.
