Wright’s Bridge stands just a mile from the last bridge featured here. Like the other bridge, it is a covered railroad bridge that crosses the Sugar River.
Getting to this bridge takes a bit of walking. I parked at the intersection of the road and the multiuse trail and walked about a kilometer to reach the bridge.
I rode my bike on this multiuse trail several years ago. Motorized vehicles are allowed on the trial and several times, groups of dirt bikes and ATVs passed me. They were always respectful, and the lead rider always signaled the number of vehicles in his or her group so that I knew how many riders to expect.
One thing that I appreciate about this bridge is that the abutments look authentic. Often when the support structures need replacing or reworking, modern concrete is used. When that happens, the abutments look out of place. The people who maintained and restored this bridge went through the effort and expense to use a stone abutment.
