Traffic has been switched from the old US 421 Milton-Madison Bridge to the new
bridge, which is sitting on temporary piers. The switch took place at about 9:37
p.m. Monday, June 3, 2013.
To access the new bridge - which is about 15 feet downstream of the old bridge -
drivers are using the newly-constructed permanent approaches in Milton, Ky., and
Madison, Ind. Toward the end of the approach, drivers use a short transition span,
which takes them to the new 40-foot-wide bridge.
The new span has a 15-ton weight limit and a 36-foot vehicle length restriction,
