Description 

This little span spanned a small branch of Beaver Creek just to the East of Bridge #49. Like all of the other truss bridges on Deep Cut Lake Road it had replaced an earlier bridge of some kind. This is evident by all of these structures sitting on cut stone abutments that were later reinforced with concrete. Unfortunately, while all of the other historic trusses remain, this one was removed at some point in time.
