This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile31300/Y-bridge-of-Galena.htm>Y-bridge of Galena</a></b><br><br>The Y-Bridge is an old highway bridge over the James River located at Galena, Missouri and opened in 1927. It is named the Y-Bridge because it is shaped like the letter &quot;Y&quot;. The bridge is such that (going east), one could then either head north or south upon reaching the east end, where the highway was between a steep bluff on the east and the river on the west. It was built to accommodate Routes 43 and 44, now Routes 413 and 248.<br />
<br />
The bridge is now closed to vehicles and has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places. A newer bridge to the north carries traffic over the river.<br />
