Y Bridge.

The Y Bridge

An interesting engineering feat from the Missouri Highway Department in 1926, according to an old marker posted on the bridge. There is also a park area adjacent to the bridge where you can park and kids can play.

Galena Y-Bridge.

The Y Bridge

Fun spot to get out and walk. The view from the bridge is beautiful, high above the James River.

Galena Y Bridge

We spotted this after taking a wrong turn heading toward Branson. It's a closed-down Y Bridge that splits near one end. My wife and I walked it end to end. There's a nice view down the river, as well.

[Steve Cook, 10/09/2008]

Galena's Y-Bridge is amply noted with Y-Bridge Boulevard an official nearby street name. But the "Y" bridge part is relatively short on one end, not as impressive (if you consider a Y-bridge impressive) as Zanesville Ohio's Y-Bridge, which splits over water.
