Rollover Pass Could Close This Summer

State and county officials say the

construction work to close Rollover Pass could start as soon as

this summer. Rollover Pass connects the Gulf Intracoastal

Waterway with the Gulf of Mexico. The county and the Texas

General Land Office plan to close it because they say it causes

problems with erosion and silting. The Gilchrist Community

Association is fighting the closure in court, but so far is

appealing its latest setback. The plan is to turn the site into

a public park with a fishing pier.
