The Traffic Fun Lasts All Weekend On The Gulf Freeway

This weekend begins a traffic nightmare on the Gulf Freeway.

Actually, it sorta began last night, when they closed down NASA Road 1 and FM 529 for a couple of months. But tomorrow night the real fun begins, as the highway itself is closed so that workers can destroy the overpass that is being replaced.

From 9 pm Friday until 5 am Monday, the freeway is closed at the Nasa Road 1 intersection.

It's the frontage roads for you if you're hoping to get to Galveston. Combine that with the fallout from closing the east-west roads and -- well, you just might want to re-think your trip.

Hey, maybe it'll rain this week and you will have an excuse not to support Galveston.
