Pennybacker Bridge (Austin 360 Bridge)

6 04 2011

Sonya and I hiked up a rocky slope to view this panorama of Lake Austin (unfortunately, I was not wearing rock-climbing-appropriate shoes—thank you, Sonya!). The Pennybacker bridges Lake Austin to connect north and south Loop 360 highway, also known as the Capital of Texas Highway. Finished in 1982, the bridge was named for Percy Pennybacker, who designed bridges for the Texas Highway Department and was a pioneer in welded structure technology.
