San Antonio Traffic Safety Equipment & Services
The most common non-rigid guardrail system is the w-beam guardrail, a hot-rolled steel rail having a w-shaped cross-section that is galvanized (zinc-coated) for corrosion security. W-beam guardrails are set up normally parallel to the highway on posts sunken into the ground, with completions of nearby rails being overlapped and bolted to the posts.
Road signs utilize shapes, colors, words, and symbols to convey a message to drivers. Without such indications, the flow of traffic would be disorderly and unpredictable. Virtually all traffic signs use retroreflective sheeting, which is designed to reflect a little of the light from car headlights back to the driver so that the sign will show up at night.

Bracken is an unincorporated community located in Comal County, Texas, United States. It lies along the eastern bank of Cibolo Creek, southwest of New Braunfels. This small Texas community is included in the Greater San Antonio area. It is considered a part of the Texas Hill Country and is situated between the major Texas cities of San Antonio and Austin.
William Bracken, for whom the town was named, purchased land in the area in 1849 after receiving a grant from Governor Peter Hansborough Bell. Originally the town was known as Davenport, named for James G. Davenport, a landowner who settled in the area in 1868. The Davenport family cemetery still stands on the western bank of Cibolo Creek.
The establishment of a post office was requested in 1883, because of the growth of the city from construction on the International and Great Northern Railroad. However, there was already a Davenport Post Office, elsewhere in Texas. This forced the town to change its name to Bracken, after the early settler.
Following the completion of the railroad in 1890, the town grew considerably. A depot and ticket stand were built, and soon, saloons lined the town’s seven blocks.
Stores and other businesses including a blacksmith, cotton gin, and lumberyard sprung up as well, contributing to the booming railroad economy. A dance hall, notorious for fights, was the center of entertainment until 1915 when a bowling alley was opened.
After the passage of the 18th Amendment to the United States Constitution implementing Prohibition, the town suffered a steep decline. Businesses left town and the general store burned to the ground. Prior to World War II, the Post Office was closed.
