|April 2013 (38.16167 Degrees, -120.64861 Degrees) State Route 49 Bridge|
Just south of the Calaveras Cement Company Bridge is the State Route 49 Bridge across Calaveritas Creek (30 0016). It's a seven span, 240 ft long reinforced concrete T girder bridge with a 60 ft span over the creek. The bridge was built in 1930 so it was here when they were building the railway bridge. It's only 24 ft wide between the curbs so it is functionally obsolete. They put infill walls between the columns on each side of the creek, which suggests it periodically over-runs its banks.
