Webber, one of the region’s largest road builders, was the apparent low bidder when the Texas Department of Transportation opened proposals for the project in Austin Wednesday. The company bid $201.8 million for the roughly four-mile-long project, which includes the bridges needed along low-lying areas and to carry Texas 146 traffic atop local streets.

Work will start as early as summer on a long-planned widening of Texas 146 at the mouth of Clear Lake, a project that has been eagerly-awaited and feared in Seabrook.
