Hello everyone from Tronto, Laromia! This article is about Tronto's Best & Worst times which effected the city through the years..

Best Times ( Pictures will be added soon... sorry )

January 14th, 1986- The J.D Bonyan Bridge is completed in Tronto. The bridge is one half miles long, and is the main entrance to downtown Tronto.. It connects to Wexford on the opposite side of the Lartica River. Now citizens of Tronto have a faster commute to downtown on this 6 lane bridge.

May 3rd, 1990- Tronto World Trade Center is completed. The 103 story tower is the centerpiece of the Business District in Downtown Tronto offering citizens with new jobs.

July 18th, 2006- Tronto's metro area hits 20 million. A huge festival is held in Laromia Square on Tecoaj Ave and Laromia Square Blvd. Over 400,000 people attended. Metro area of Tronto includes, Wexford, Pinskie, South Tronto, Bradley South, Deria, Green Port, Winstonburg, Harrison, River City, Eastville, and 20 other major districts.

Worst Times

Febuary 9th, 2000- The Tronto Slow Down, the Tronto Slow Down was a 3 year period in which demand, funds, and population was on the brink of collapse. Citizens moved outside of Tronto to find work, and industrial jobs shut down. The Tronto Slow Down recovered in August 2004.

September 20th, 2006- The LaroTech Oil Powerplant across the river from Tronto in Wexford exploded. It killed at least 40 people and 5 of them still have not been recovered, It also pouluted the Lartica River.
