The construction of a former Walker Mountain Rd bridge over the Otter Creek that was built in 1913 became quite contentious.  An alternative crossing was not available during construction and the construction was not moving fast enough for the general public or State authorities.  It reached the point that in a July 22, 1913 letter the State was threatening legal action against the Town.  That letter can be seen here.  Below are three letters prior letters attempting to resolve the situation.  All of these letters were found in the Holden materials. 

More information on the bridge itself can be found in the Otter Creek Bridge, Walker Mt. Rd entry in this collection.
