On the 50th anniversary of the birth of the Civilian Conservation Corps, CCC, in the Alaska Life section of The Anchorage Times, a picture of CCC workers building a 120 foot long wooden bridge across the Kenai River in mid-Cooper Landing was featured. Construction of this bridge was one of several CCC projects in the Cooper Landing area. Melvin Rogers was foreman of the project which was completed in early 1935. The bridge crossed from Bean Creek Road to between Frank and Hazle Towle's home and Jack Lean's store.
