  • Drivers urged to consider highway work zones ‘No Phone Zones’

    Many drivers in Kentucky will encounter at least one work zone during their daily travels. With 90 percent of adults in America owning a cell phone, it has become increasingly common to see multi-tasking drivers dialing, texting or talking on their phones while driving through work zones.
    National Work Zone Awareness Week is April 7-11. With April also being National Distracted Driving Awareness month, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is working to raise awareness of the dangers associated with distracted driving – especially through work zones.

  • Clarification: Jenkins not leaving

    Bedford resident Jason Jenkins, although withdrawing from the Trimble County judge-executive race in the May Democrat Primary, will not be relocating to Muhlenberg County as reported in last week’s Trimble Banner.
    “I’m not moving down there,” Jenkins said Tuesday. “I had the opportunity to buy a business down there, which I did, but I’ll continue to be a Farm Bureau agent here and operate the business from here.”
    Jenkins said he withdrew from the political race “because I couldn’t do all three jobs.”

  • Milton-Madison Bridge was to be slid into place Wednesday

    The new Milton-Madison Bridge was scheduled to be moved into place yesterday. The slide of the structure, said to be the largest bridge slide of its type in North America, occurred after this week’s edition of The Trimble Banner went to press. However, updates, photos and a time-lapse video will be posted on our website at www.mytrimblenews.com when they become available.

    The bridge, which spans nearly a half-mile and weighs some 30 million pounds, was to slide 55 feet laterally from its temporary piers and onto refurbished permanent piers.  

  • Hwy 36 slide destroys house

    Heavy rainfall last week led to two serious mudslides along Hwy. 36 West near Notch Lick in Carroll County, closing the state route twice to through traffic – once on Friday and again on Sunday night.
    The first slide – measuring 75-100 feet wide and 200 feet long – occurred in the 1800 block, just below a hilltop house owned by Sam and Sue Scott. The weight of the sliding earth and trees crushed an unoccupied rental house and other buildings further down on the hillside, only a few feet from the highway.

  • Heavy rain generates mudslides

    By TEENA DRAKE
    Special to The Trimble Banner

    Much as earlier local residents during the precipitation of 1937, 1964, and 1997, citizens along the Ohio River anticipated rising waters as the wind whipped and rain poured last week. Much to their surprise the hills gave way creating mudslides and landslides. Creeks roared out of their banks and debris rushed down causing Milton residents a multitude of problems.

  • BRIDGE SLIDE COMPLETE!!!

    The record-breaking slide of the Milton-Madison Bridge is complete.  Thursday afternoon, Apr. 10, the new bridge’s 55-foot journey from temporary piers to its permanent, refurbished piers came to a successful completion.

    Spanning nearly a half mile, the truss of the Milton-Madison Bridge is now the longest bridge in North America – and perhaps the world – to be slid laterally into place, making this a historic day for Madison, Indiana and Milton, Kentucky.
