Olivia Flores Alvarez reports that the bridge to Galveston is now open. Looks like the police are letting people back in with Galveston driver's licenses.
There's tons of debris on the side of the bridge, and the southbound lanes are still closed, but there's two-way traffic on the northbound lane. Very slow two-way traffic, but traffic nonetheless. -- Keith Plocek Click here for Friday images from Galveston.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
