History in a Pecan Shell

1892
: Llano was incorporated, the Llano River was bridged, and the Austin and Northwestern Railroad opened a depot on the north side of the Llano River. This was also the year the courthouse burned.

1935: The Roy Inks Bridge was built after a flood swept away the 1892 bridge.

In the famous drought of the early 50s - the Llano River actually went dry on two separate occasions.

Subject: "Roy Inks Bridge" & Inks Lake Bridge

Both bridges: SH 16 over Llano River (Roy Inks Bridge) and SH 29 over Colorado River (Inks Lake Bridge) below Buchanan Dam were built by Austin Bridge Company in the 1930's. Regards, Donald L. Towles, P.E. Austin Bridge & Road, LP, February 22, 2008
