  • 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.”

  • 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.

  • Wind conditions halt bridge slide at 30 percent complete

    Bridge Slide on Hold Due to Wind Conditions

    The slide of the Milton-Madison Bridge progressed 16 feet onWednesday, Apr. 9, between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.  But due to wind gusts over the Ohio River, the slide is on hold.  The wind conditions – which were more severe over the river — affected the synchronization of sliding the bridge over the five piers.

  • Bridge slide now set for Wednesday, April 9

    The highly anticipated slide of the 2,428-foot Milton-Madison Bridge onto its
    refurbished piers – the largest such maneuver in North America – will tentatively
    take place beginning Wednesday morning, April 9.
