Section of new Milton-Madison Bridge to be lifted into place next week

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Crews working on the Milton-Madison Bridge are ready to lift one of the temporary piers into place starting next week.

The bridge will remain open during the span lift.

The pre-assembled section of the new bridge is about the size of two football fields, and will be floated into place on barges and slowly lifted 85 feet onto temporary piers.

The next span of the new bridge will be put into place in August.  Later this year, the new bridge will be slid into place of the old one.
