Milton-Madison Bridge construction progressing

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, IN (WAVE) – Construction is moving right along on the Milton-Madison Bridge.

The project is a unique effort to replace the deteriorating US 421 Ohio River Bridge between Milton, Kentucky and Madison, Indiana.

Despite the project, the bridge is open to traffic. With both span lifts complete, workers are building the remainder of the truss, starting with span one on the Milton side of the river.

The $100 million project is a joint effort of both Kentucky and Indiana. The new bridge is expected to be open in 2013.
