Galena's Y Bridge

Real Estate Agent with Tri-Lakes REALTORS

Did you know that Galena boasts something spectacular that not many others can? Yes, the Y Bridge. It is called the Y Bridge due to being shaped like the letter "Y". My understanding (and what I found on the internet to confirm what I have always been told) is that there are only 2 other Y Bridges in the world. The bridge was opened in 1927 and was constructed with materials around the river. It replaced the wagon bridge to accomodate vehicles. In 1986 the bridge was closed down to vehicles. In 1991 the bridge was placed on the National Register of Historical Places. You can now take a liesurely walk along the bridge and enjoy the view high above the river.
