Harris County, TX— Thursday, September 12, 2019- Commissioner Adrian Garcia is closely monitoring the protest on the Fred Hartman Bridge and working with Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, who is leading the management of the situation.

At this time, two northbound lanes on the bridge are shutdown, traffic is moving slowly and no water vessels are allowed in the area. To help with traffic, Precinct 2 has put a second ferry into service until 8 p.m. tonight and will start service again at 4:30 a.m. tomorrow, if traffic volumes require it.  Commuters are being asked to avoid the area and use alternate routes.

Sheriff Gonzalez says his top priority is public safety and he will not endanger the lives of first responders or anyone else to resolve the temporary situation. At this time, his team is assessing and preparing for a number of contingencies.  
 
Commissioner Adrian Garcia is urging the Sheriff to arrest and charge the protesters for the appropriate crimes as they have caused public disruption and the loss of millions of dollars to our local commerce.
