Another Big Tube transported on Clinton Drive

LAST TUESDAY, August 5, Kinder-Morgan transported a second Splitter Tower or Tube, down Clinton Drive in Galena Park, from the old Brown & Root dock out onto Clinton, and then to the site of their new plant at the east end of Clinton. Due to the extreme height of the tube, 25 feet with truck bed, the wires crossing the street had to be lifted out of the way, as can be seen in the photos at right and above. K-M chose to move the tube at about 5 p.m. when traffic from the plants was at a minimum. K-M said that they plan to move a third tube, but not for about one year.
