Here’s what’s happening on the Milton-Madison Bridge Project:
- A 100-foot concrete section of the bridge on the Kentucky side has been slid into place
- Work to jack up the southeast corner of the bridge and replace a bearing has been completed
- Old pier 5, the only river pier not being reused, has been completely demolished
- The next step is to slide the nearly half-mile steel truss laterally 55 feet onto its permanent piers
- Following the slide: Final paint and touch up will take place. The sidewalk and railing will be installed. Any temporary works will be removed, such as the temporary piers, the causeway in Madison and the trestle in Milton. The remaining scour mitigation will be placed at the piers. And repairs will be made at the Milton boat ramp.
