Galbreath Crossing Bridge

Map 

Description 

Originally located in Milam County, County Road 240 over Big Elm Creek. A new bridge was built at that location in 1988 per NBI data. Bridge was picked off the waterway and set to the north side of the creek in 1994. Sparks Engineering reports this bridge is wrought iron and suggests the reported 1912 construction date may be incorrect as a result.
