U.S. 281: Bridge to the future

POSTED 4-10-2010

MARBLE FALLS — A day rarely goes by that Marble Falls Realtor Pat Burton doesn’t cross the U.S. 281 Bridge over Lake Marble Falls.

“We’ve crossed that bridge now for 48 years. (I wish) I had a nickel for every time I went across it,” she said. “The kids used to get on their skateboards and go all the way across the bridge. They were on the street, right there on the highway. There wasn’t much traffic back then.”
