Iron Bridges of Burnet County coming back to commissioners court


The North Fork San Gariel Bridge, called the Joppa Bridge, is open to the public, unlike the Russel Fork San Gabriel Bridge, which has been blocked off to public access, accordinto to local historians, who appeared before the Burnet County Commissioners Court Nov. 14. The problem is back on the court's agenda again Tuesday, Nov. 28.
