The first annual Galveston Island Brewing 5k is happening this Saturday and will have minimal impacts on Stewart Road from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m.
This first-year 5K will begin at Galveston Island Brewing (8423 Stewart Road), proceed west on Stewart Road, north on 99th Street, and make a U-Turn just past Sydnor Lane to return back to the Brewery. Modified lanes by the Traffic Department will allow for vehicular traffic to remain open in both directions on Stewart Road, though minor delays may occur as the participants cross over. On 99th Street, a GPD officer will flag vehicles through for the short duration of the event. To register for the race or to find out more visit www.runintexas.com/galveston
