The Builders of Walnut Creek Road Bridge over Burns Creek

2012-11-21 - Walnut Creek Road, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. This is most, if not all, of the crew which built the Walnut Creek Road Bridge over Burns Creek. From left - Third District Magistrate Sammy Baker, Terry Williams, John Denton, Jeff Herron, David Harden, Gary Coffey, County Road Supervisor Jobe Darnell, Tom Brock, Cary Scott, Jeffrey Wright, and, not pictured but present, Tony Denton. Magistrate Baker presided at the bridge opening. CJE Ann Melton was unable to attend the event because of pressing family needs. The bridge was opened to traffic shortly after 11amCT today, Wednesday, November 21, 2012. Squire Baker provided a hamburger cookout lunch. Walnut Grove Road links KY 704 south of Fairplay with Chance on KY 1952. The valley area was once known as Gridertown because of a Grider family enclave there. Now the dominant families of Valley are the Hingles and the Meyers.
