The Lone Star Rally is coming to Galveston island. Expect street closures and traffic.

The 16th annual Lone Star Rally is underway in Galveston after getting to a roaring start.

The big event on the island began on Thursday and will bring more than 250,000 motorcycles to the four-day motorcycle rally.

It is the biggest event of its kind in North America, and several streets will be blocked off, including portions of Seawall Boulevard, Strand, Harborside, and Mechanic.

Seawall Boulevard will be subject to closures from 19th Street to 25th Street.

Eastbound traffic will remain open during the rally dates to both vehicles and motorcycles.

Westbound traffic will be detoured north down 19th Street to Avenue O, west to 25th Street, and south to Seawall Boulevard.

The Strand will be closed to eastbound motorcycle traffic only from 18th Street to 25th Street.

Mechanic will be closed for motorcycle parking from 25th Street to 18th Street.

More street closures include 24th Street, 23rd Street, 22nd Street, 21st Street, and 20th from Market to Harborside. All areas will reopen on Sunday evening, November 5th.

You can easily access the activities on the seawall and downtown using the Galveston Trolley. This weekend, it's running a special route, and it's free.

You can board the downtown trolley at each intersection along Post Office between 25th Street and 21st Street.

The downtown trolley will then take riders to the transfer station just before the heart of the event area on Ave O between 21st and 22nd Street.

You can then transfer to the Seawall Trolley which will run from Stewart Beach to Moody Gardens along the Seawall Blvd.

The trolley will run from Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
