Russell Wilde - Staff Reporter

The Loop 82 bridge over the San Marcos River at Sewell Park received some minor damage during Monday’s flood event.

It appears that water pushing against the bridge’s guardrail caused some of the concrete to break away, exposing the bolts used to secure it to the roadway. Loop 82, or Aquarena Springs Drive, is a state highway which is overseen by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).
