A boom is used to fill the last pier cap mold for the new Madison-Milton bridge Monday. Once the concrete is cured and the cap set, plates will be installed for the bridge slide from the temporary piers. The slide is expected to be in mid-February, though many variables are at play, which will determine the actual date. Demolition of the old bridge pier near Madison is expected in the coming weeks. An official spokesman with the project said that a report at a recent Milton City Commission meeting stating that the first blast to the old pier would be today was not correct and that the blast will likely be next week. Before the blast, official notices - including any safety perimeters - will be sent to all media outlets and posted at the project's official website, www.miltonmadisonbridge.com.
