Madison-Milton Bridge Project
MONITORING THE BRIDGE

Top, Erin VanZee, a load rating engineer from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, looks around a rusted part of the Madison-Milton bridge on Wednesday. The bridge was reduced to one lane again today for completion of the bridge inspection. Engineers from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and officials from the Indiana Department of Transportation are monitoring items that were checked during previous inspections. The bridge had been inspected every two months starting in 2010, but starting this month will be inspected every month.

Here's what's happening on the Madison-Milton bridge project:
Workers are laying the base for asphalt on the temporary ramps in Milton and Madison.
Assembly continues on the temporary towers adjacent to piers 3 and 4.
As part of ongoing pier strengthening work, another concrete pour is expected next week on pier 4.
The first brief bridge closure is planned for next week, starting at midnight on April 25 and going through April 29. During the closure, temporary ramps will be connected to the bridge and the existing bridge approaches will be demolished.
