Local firm gets highway project bid
The Dean Word Co. of New Braunfels has submitted the low bld on improvements to State Highway 123 at FN 477 and Meadow Lake Dr. intersections.
Walter Elders, Seguing resident engineer for the Texas Department of Highways and Public Transportation, said the highway commission will meet later this month to officially award the contract.
Word's bid of $86,992 was low on the totem pole, compared to Wagner and Sons of San Antonio, and W.A. Hollub Co. of Seguin.
The project will provide two 12-foot travel lanes and a 12-foot left turn lane on Highway 123 and at FM 477 (which will also he widened at the intersection). At Meadow Lake Drive, improvements will be made an the turn lane and shoulders.
The new construction, proposed to begin in three to six weeks, was requested by the Highway Department as a safety measure. Numerous accidents and fatalities have qualified the work ai a priority project.
Tuesday’s high was 90 degress. The overnight low was a record SO degrees. The high today should be in the low-7Qs.
Canyon Lake dropped four-hundredths of a foot Tuesday, with measurements at 904.74 feet above sea level today.
A Canadian cold front that roared across Texas, accompanied by gusty winds and
thunderstorms, sent the mercury plunging to record lows from Amarillo to Brownsville at dawn today.
Records were set or tied at Amarillo, Dallas-Fort Worth, Lubbock, San Angelo, Wichita Falls, Austin and Brownsville. One low temperature shattered a previous low dating bade before the turn of the century and several dated back to the closing days of World War I.
Amarillo shivered under below-freezing temperatures when the mercury dipped to 31 at 6:30 a.m., tweaking a record of 39 set in 1965. It was barely above freezing at Lubbock where a dawn reading of 33 broke a 1918 record of 42 degrees.
Wichita Falls recorded 38, breaking a 1942 record of 48. It was 45 at Dallas-Fort Worth, shattering a record of 48 set in 1918. San Angelo’s 47 edged out a record 49 set in 1971. The 53-degree mark at Austin was one degree colder than the previous record low recorded in 1942. At Brownsville, the mercury dipped to 60, making today the coldest Sept. 21 on record since 1897.
Scattered thundershowers and cloudy skies lingered over portions of South and East Texas in the wake of the Canadian cold front that passed through the state.
The remainder of the state reported clear skies and cool temperatures.
Pre-dawn temperatures dropped to the 30s and 40s over West Texas, while readings
in the 50s and 60s were the rule across tbs rest of Texas.
A front that quick-frose the northern Rockies with an early Mast of wintry temperatures pushed east today, tailgating a line of storms and heralding a season change for the sweltering Atlantic Coast as it shoved record summer heat out to aes.
Westerners donned their parkas today as record lows again chilled the Rockies and northern Plains. This morning, Williston, N.D., registered 25 degrees, one degree lower than the 1972 record, Casper, Wyo., reported 23 degrees, and Yellowstone, Wyo., had 21.
