Galveston-Bolivar Ferry to be closed Saturday morning

Special to The Leader

GALVESTON — Galveston-Bolivar Ferry operations will be closed Saturday, November 16 from 8:00 a.m. to 11 a.m. while a dredge pipe is submerged across the Bolivar landing. The dredge pipe will be used to remove excess material that has built up underwater at the landing site.


During this time ferry operations will be halted and passengers are asked to adjust their travel plans accordingly. For safety reasons this is being performed during daytime hours.
