Western Bypass work being done by hard-working crew
O.C. photo inspires writer's memories of family's roadbuilding heritage. She says parkway will "add to the beauty of an already beautiful part of the state."
By Fay Wright
I am writing to say how much I have appreciated seeing all of the photos of the Western Bypass construction being done by the hard-working crew of Haydon Brothers Contracting.
One I am most proud of is my husband J.W. Wright; he has been a construction worker; for over 40 years; his late Dad Henry Wright got him started in the construction work; and J.W. carries on the family tradition today.
All of the residents of Adair county should be very glad and proud to have such a fine working group of people building the bypass. It will not only add to the beauty of an already beautiful part of our fine state of Kentucky; but will add to the economic value to the county as well.
My husband J.W. is not the only man from good ole Green County working on the bypass; there are several others; also some women.They all are very proud of the work that they do; they do not do the work to earn fortune nor fame; they work to provide for their families; as most men and women do today.But they deserve a Big Thanks for a job well done, easch and every day.
