Lake LBJ, Texas / Llano River flooding

Any peeps here on Lake LBJ, TX? How is the situation there with all the flooding from the Llano river? Looking pretty bad from here. I just saw footage on the FM 2900 bridge collapse! Hope you are doing ok up here. Prayers!

We stayed in a house last month for a vacation just down from the FM2900 bridge that collapsed! Boat Town has a location right there as well. Hope everyone's alright and that the home owner took their brand new XT22 out of the water!

It's not looking good for boattown or anyone along the river right now and we still have at least a week worth of rain on the forecast. Lake Travis is a large lake and it's gone up 10ft in 24hrs and expected to flood by tomorrow. A lot of boats going over the dam and making their way down river.

I've driven over that bridge countless number of times over the years in route to my friends lake house on Buchanan. Hopefully the 1431 bridge will hold true, because if it collapses, the only way to access that area will be through Burnet. As far is I know, the new Boat Town facility is still dry, but water is close to the building. Their dock is probably gone!


I'm watching Buchanan's level closely. It's rising about 3" per hour. It still has a level deficit of 1.58', but this incident will erase that quickly.

Lake Travis has gone up 22ft in 24hrs. Amazing considering the lake is 65 miles long.

Historic event for sure! Buchananís flood gates have begun to open as well. I saw a pic of the Fall Creek waterfalls, and they looked like a raging river rapids! I certainly hope they Travis can handle it.

yep, 2nd highest level on record for the Llano River in Llano, record that wasn't broken was from 1935. On one of the news casts posted on Facebook yesterday, was someone from Boat Town just down from the 2900 bridge that collapsed, by the sounds of it, they potentially lost 4 boats and saved 1.

Historic amount of water being released thru Wirtz (lake LBJ) and Starke (Marble Falls) dams all dumping into Travis. Flood waters were hitting the upper most lake, Buchanan, and they were supposed to start opening up flood gates there once the Llano started to drop some. Also they were opening up Mansfield (Travis) as it was suspected to hit flood stage with all the upper lakes dumping into it.

https://waterdatafortexas.org/reserv...ividual/travis

I grew up on the upper 3 lakes (Buchanan, Inks, LBJ) and spent some time on the next 4 (Marble Falls, Travis, Austin, Town (now Lady Bird)) and still have friends all along most of those that are being impacted. I heard last night that the FM2900 bridge in Kingsland was built in 1969 based on the 50 year flood plans.
