Milton-Madison Bridge Ceremony Set

A public ceremony to dedicate the new Milton-Madison Bridge has been rescheduled for Tuesday, October 28, at 2:30 p.m. The event will take place on Vaughn Drive in Madison just east of the bridge.  Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear and Indiana Governor Mike Pence, along with other dignitaries, will be on hand to highlight the innovative solution used to replace the original Milton-Madison Bridge, which opened in 1929.

At nearly a half-mile long, the new bridge became the longest bridge in North America — and perhaps the world — to be slid laterally into place when it was moved 55 feet from temporary piers onto refurbished permanent piers this past April.
