CR307  at the Slab Open

From Llano County Commissioner Peter Jones:

Good News. The Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) today opened CR307 across the low water crossing at the slab on the Llano River.

This will give access to cross the Llano River at Kingsland and provide a shorter alternate route for all.

I do remind everyone that CR307 is an open range road on sections of this county road and livestock are free to roam on this road. I urge all who drive this road to be cautious and slow down for their own safety and those of the livestock.

The 2900 bridge is in its’ 8th day of construction of the 150 day plan to complete.

Drawdown will allow lakeside property owners to clean up flood debris and work on damaged docks

Nov. 5, 2018

The Lower Colorado River Authority will lower lakes LBJ and Marble Falls for about eight weeks in early 2019 to assist lakeside property owners recovering from recent historic flooding along the Colorado and Llano rivers.

The drawdown will make it easier for residents to remove debris and maintain or repair docks, retaining walls and other infrastructure.

“We were not planning to lower Lake LBJ again this soon because it was just lowered in 2017, but after the flood it’s clear property owners needed an opportunity to remove debris and repair their property,” said John Hofmann, LCRA executive vice president of Water. “We are hopeful the drawdown will assist in flood recovery and help get 2019 off to a good start.”

The drawdowns for both lakes will begin Sunday, Dec. 30, and will conclude on Saturday, Feb. 23.

LCRA will lower Lake LBJ about 4 feet, from its normal operating range of 824.4 to 825 feet above mean sea level (feet msl) to a range of 820.2 to 820.8 feet msl. The lake will be lowered about 1 foot a day for four days beginning Dec. 30.

Lake Marble Falls will be lowered about 7 feet, from its normal operating range of 736.2 to 737 feet msl to a range of 729 to 730 feet msl. The lake will be lowered about 1 foot a day for seven days beginning Dec. 30.

A permit is not required for dock repairs on lakes LBJ and Marble Falls during the drawdown, but all work must comply with LCRA’s Safety Standards for Residential Docks on the Highland Lakes. Maintenance, dredging, debris removal and repair work on existing retaining walls during the drawdown can be performed under LCRA’s permit with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, but the work must be registered with LCRA before it begins. Registration forms are available:

  • Online at
  • By calling LCRA Water Quality Protection at 512-578-2324.
  • In person at the LCRA Western Maintenance Facility, 2643 Wirtz Dam Road, Marble Falls, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Burning debris in the lakebed is not allowed.

For more information on work allowed during the drawdown, visit or contact LCRA Water Quality Protection at 512-578-2324.
