Construction on the multi-million dollar Project 421 Gateway to Madison began in April 2019 to reconstruct a new U.S. 421 approach to the Milton-Madison Bridge over the Ohio River.
The project, which the state has now earmarked for up to $15 million in funding, has included demolition of structures and reconfiguration of streets as well as work on water mains, gas lines and sidewalks. All work is projected to be complete by late summer 2020, the state transportation department has said. Throughout the project’s phases, drivers were told to expect lane closures and reduced speed limits as crews worked. That has been the case. Crews began last week to work on the north side of Second Street west of Harrison. This week, they continue the work on gas pipelines that have to be finished before more work on the street and sidewalk itself can begin. (Madison Courier photos by Mark Campbell)
