MADISON, Indiana — The governors of Indiana and Kentucky are scheduled to attend a dedication ceremony for the new $103 million Madison-Milton Bridge next month.
The bridge was moved from temporary piers to its permanent spot in April. It took about 16 hours to slide the 30-million-pound steel truss. Highway officials say the truss, nearly a half-mile long, is the longest in North America to be slid laterally into place.
The bridge reopened to traffic on April 17. Work is continuing on a pedestrian sidewalk.
