    Lake Marble Falls restaurant

    The pictures are really coming in now. This riverside restaurant is on US281 in Marble Falls, next to the host hotel from the Weekend Getaway a few years ago. River City Grille, owned by same family as the Bluebonnet Cafe down tne street...PIE...but thats another story.

    This was most likely on the 16th. Having been on that deck many times this is a sight as it really sits high.

    I have been watching the online news & this thread about the flooding. Here in Charlotte NC there has been no news reporting on the flooding in Texas.

    Groundbreaking on new bridge in Kingsland

    A fast track design and contract awarding broke ground this week. Everyone is shocked but very happy with pace TXDOT tackled this.The bridge will be taller.Crews will work 24/7 and plan to open new bridge in April.

    Remember the old saw of those in acquisition: you can get it quickly, built to a high standard of quality or inexpensively...... pick any two. Since it is being built quickly it is probably best if it is expensive. (Unfortunately it is also possible to get one or none of the options.)

    That's really something to do a design and award a contract that fast.

    The last time they fast tracked one was after the Blanco River/Wimberley Flood. The Fischer Store bridge was built on a 24/7 schedule and was back in service amazingly fast. The one outside of town was a conventional 5 day a week , but amazingly went up as quick and looking at it a better design...but that's my perspective.

    I never really grasped how important this bridge was until I tried to go that way last week and had an hour reroute. Was such an automatic route, I forgot about it until I was committed to that route and had a moment.
