Welcome to The City of Marble Falls



Founded in 1887 by General Adam R. Johnson and incorporated on May 18, 1907, Marble Falls is located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country on the Colorado River. It is centrally located 47 miles northwest of Austin and 85 miles north of San Antonio, in the middle of the Highland Lakes area, the largest chain of lakes in Texas.Before the dam was built to form Lake Marble Falls on the Colorado River, there were falls of marble giving the name Marble Falls to the City. The falls are now under water and only visible on those rare occasions when the LCRA lowers the lake for repairs.

Street Construction
LOS ESCONDIDOS ROAD CLOSURE ~ Los Escondidos at US 281 just southeast of the Marble Falls Bridge will be closed beginning Thursday, March 24, 2011 so TxDOT can begin construction of the connecting roadway for the eastern bridge structure. Vehicles should use Gateway North and Gateway Parkway.

BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION ~ Construction crews are working on a new lift station on the south side of the bridge and are working on moving water lines on the north side, all in preparation for construction of the new bridge. As a part of the construction you will note that the entrances of many businesses are filled with construction equipment. The contractor has a short window to complete the work in order to disrupt businesses as little as possible and to allow TxDOT to begin construction on time.
