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.
