Texas does the contraflow

Posted By on Wed, Sep 10, 2008 at 8:31 PM

From the Corpus Christi Caller:

While no mandatory evacuation has been issued in Corpus Christi because of Hurricane Ike, contra-flow evacuation lanes will be opened on Interstate 37 tomorrow starting at 7 a.m. Thursday, city officials said.

Texas Department of Transportation spokesman Cliff Bost said all lanes on Interstate 37 will be opened to go out of town.

Still no word on Houston/Galveston contraflow, but Galveston mayor Lyda Ann Thomas has called for a voluntary evacuation from the "low-lying" parts of Galveston Island.
