Highway 281 Bridge
Marble Falls, Texas
This bridge's predecessor, built in 1891, was destroyed by the June 1935 flood. But onlookers defied the flood, racing across the bridge moments before a 40-foot wall of water swept it away. The city operated a ferry until this 991-foot bridge was completed in 1937.
