Motorists traveling along Birdwell Lane this week are being asked to use caution and have some patience, as one of the southbound lanes of the thoroughfare from Sunset to 11th Place will be closed for repairs.
According to Assistant City Manager Todd Darden, the street repairs are part of the city of Big Spring's recent waterline replacement project that began on Third and Fourth streets and recently made its way out to Birdwell Lane.
The runoff election to select a new Big Spring Independent School District trustee is attracting next to no attention from voters so far.

Incumbent Maria Padilla, seeking a fourth term on the board, is facing challenger Pat DeAnda in the election.
