MILTON-MADISON BRIDGE
New Milton-Madison bridge over Ohio River set to reopen to traffic by Thursday night

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, April 16, 2014 2:48 PM EDT
MADISON, Ind.


A bridge over the Ohio River is set to reopen to traffic by Thursday night and once again allow motorists to drive between Madison, Ind., and Milton, Ky.

The Indiana Department of Transportation announced Wednesday that the Milton-Madison Bridge will reopen to all motorists by 11:59 p.m. Thursday, weather permitting. The bridge temporarily closed March 11.

The reopening would come one week after construction crews finished sliding the nearly half-mile-long bridge 55 feet from temporary piers onto refurbished permanent piers. INDOT says it's the longest bridge in North America to be slid laterally into place.

INDOT says there's still work to do on the $100 million joint project with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, so the bridge will remain a work zone with a 20 mph speed limit for a while.
