Wright – Cromwell News
By: Jennie K. Hanson, Pine Journal
After almost a month and three deaths, the bridge on Center Road is finally open to traffic. It wasn’t too hard to make the detour on the way to Cromwell, but when just going to Wright or west, we had to make a four-mile round about to get to town. We sure do appreciate the new bridge now and it sure looks nice.
