Milton Madison Bridge Project wins "2012 Best of What's New Award"

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Popular Science Magazine has awarded the Milton Madison Bridge Project the "2012 Best of What's New Award" for its innovative design and construction method.

The bridge, which connects Milton, Kentucky and Madison, Indiana, is under construction and scheduled for completion in spring of next year.

The Walsh Construction Company is building a new truss bridge on temporary piers alongside the existing bridge.  That allows the bridge to stay open during construction.

Next year, the new truss will be slid onto the existing piers, which are being strengthened and reused.
