  • Bicycle plate change underway on Milton-Madison Bridge

    Construction crews have started work to change the bicycle plates on the Milton-Madison Bridge. The work – which will smooth the bridge transition for bicycle traffic - involves changing the plates in each shoulder on each end of the truss bridge.
    Milling work is expected to take about two weeks. Once that is completed, the new plates will be installed. Work will occur at one location at a time and will require no lane closures - only shoulder closures. The work will not impact the pedestrian walkway.
