Final touch-up painting on the Milton-Madison Bridge resumed on Monday, April 6. During this work the bridge’s sidewalk will remain open to pedestrians. There will be daily closings of the bridge shoulders (emergency lanes). Drivers are urged to slow down and use caution when crossing the bridge while crews are at work. The painting is expected to last throughout the summer.
The Milton-Madison Bridge Project — a joint effort between the Indiana Department of Transportation and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet — has received numerous state and national engineering awards for innovation. Spanning nearly a half mile, the truss of the Milton-Madison Bridge made history in April 2014 by being the longest bridge in North America — and perhaps the world —to be slid laterally into place.
