Landmark Texas Department Store Imploded

HOUSTON (September 22, 2013)--Vehicle, bus and light rail traffic came to a halt early Sunday in Houston as the downtown Macy's department store, once known as Foley's, was blown up just after sunrise.

The implosion leveled the high-rise building.

Pedestrian and vehicle traffic came to a halt hours, and in some cases, days earlier.

Light rail service around the historic department store stopped at 9 p.m. Friday.

By early Sunday traffic and bus service along 14 routes had been detoured.

Traffic was scheduled to return to normal by noon Sunday.
