AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 14 (UPI) -- Gov. Rick Perry announced Wednesday that the Queen Isabella Causeway - the only link between South Padre Island and the Texas mainland -- is expected to officially reopen before Thanksgiving. The bridge was heavily damaged Sept. 15 when a barge knocked down several sections of the span and eight motorists were killed.
