Roy Inks Bridge

Llano County

Llano River, Llano, Texas

History

When floodwaters in June 1935 pushed the Llano River to its highest recorded crest of 42 feet, they swept away a bridge that had stood since 1892. The successor bridge - named for Roy Inks, a former mayor of Llano and original member of LCRA's Board of Directors - easily withstood the river's second-highest crest of 38.6 feet during a flood in June 1997. (Listed in 1998 in the National Register of Historic Places.)
