Llano River Bridge (Old)
Posted March 24, 2017, by Steve Roberts (acct01 [at] hutofsticks [dot] com)

Photographs #3 is described as the piers of the original bridge. In fact, this is the remains of a low water crossing that was, I believe, installed whilst the replacement bridge was under construction. The piers of the original bridge were constructed from large blocks of granite - many of which (perhaps all) are still lying around in the riverbed beneath the current bridge.

This is an interesting site. Thank you for making all this information available!
