A bridge over Cedar Creek was built and completed. This bridge was of great assistance to both natives and non-natives for pulpwood and provisions to and from lumber camps.
The road at Bitobi forks was rebuilt and culverts were made along Bitobi and Congway roads. At that time, they were using horses ' and wagons to haul their gravel.
