|April 2013 (38.13111 Degrees, -120.63472 Degrees) State Route 49 Bridge|
Back on State Route 49 over San Antonio Creek on a five span steel girder bridge. It's interesting that the bridges carrying State Route 49 are 70 years older than the bridges carrying Pool Station Road. The Golden Chain Highway must have been built as the first road through the county while Pool Station Road must be one of the most recent roads through the county.
The State Route 49 Bridge (30 0017) is a 152 ft long five span steel girder bridge on pier walls that was built in 1934. Like all the other SR 49 bridges in Calaveras County it is only 24 ft wide. The bridge is rated fair with a sufficiency rating of 70.5, and cit arries 6500 vehicles a day. Like all the bridges we've looked at in Calaveras County so far it is ineligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
