Location of 1939 road grading and drainage workTexas State Highway 95 from Bastrop to Sayersville. (Map prepared by Larry D. Moore)
The February 9, 1939 issue of the Bastrop Advertiser published a letter from Texas Senator Albert Stone advising Bastrop residents that bids would soon be accepted for the grading and drainage structure for nine miles of Texas State Highway 95 starting eight miles south of Elgin, near Sayersville, to Bastrop. The road had already been improved from Elgin to Sayersville and this would complete the connection to Bastrop. The Works Progress Administration was funding the $109,000 relief project with 30% of the cost expected to be spent on labor.
