MILTON, KY (WAVE) - The Milton-Madison bridge is a step closer to completion as crews floated the second section of the bridge in place.

The very slow process of moving the piece started Monday morning.

 The 727-foot section took several tug boats to move into place. The span weighs about 2,000 tons and was floated from the Milton shoreline.

The $100 million project is a joint effort of both Kentucky and Indiana to replace the U.S. 421 Bridge.
