Roadway buckles near Silsbee High School

By Daniel Elizondo

Drivers came upon a surprise while traveling eastbound on Texas 327 on Thursday afternoon.

Calls were made to Hardin County dispatch of a large crack on the road, and vehicles were stopping to take a gander.

Apparently, heat was the contributing factor to the crack that extends over both eastbound lanes.

Fortunately, the crack occurred near a left turn lane to Silsbee High School to allow for traffic to pass through.

“It looks like it could have been water getting under the roadway,” said one City of Silsbee utility worker. “And the heat just caused it to buckle.”

Texas Department of Transportation officials arrived around 4:30 p.m. to begin working on the roadway.

There is no word on how long it will take, but city officials say it could be 24 hours.

How one door explains an incident in Hardin County in the 1800’s.

The Museum of Hardin County is open to researching and accepting items that are donated for display. Curator Cecil Wells was determined to get one particular item in the museum. One that he said holds significant history during the days of the Civil War. It wasn’t too long ago that Wells found what he was looking for. A prized door of a cabin that holds the evidence of an attempted murder in Hardin County. “I really wanted this door here for a long time,” Wells said. “I had heard about it, and knew it was out there somewhere.”
