The Texas Department of Transportation has a plan for Fourth of July traffic towards the ferries.

The plan will be implemented on SH 361.

According to a release from TxDOT, the existing center left-turn lane will be converted to a through lane at the Avenue A/Port Street intersection with the traffic signals flashing red in all directions.

TxDOT believes this will reduce congestion for the Holiday weekend from July 2 to July 6.

"This is designed to separate the ferry traffic from through traffic that is using the northbound right lane to travel to Cotter Street," says the release.

There will be a portable message sign directing ferry traffic on SH 361.
