New Milton-Madison Bridge to be slid onto piers the week of April 6

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The big slide for the Milton-Madison Bridge is just weeks away.

Officials say they will begin sliding the new bridge onto its permanent piers the week of April 6.

The process could take about a week. That means the bridge will remain closed through the middle of April.

A 100-foot section of the bridge was moved into place two weeks ago after a steel bearing dislodged.

A ferry is giving emergency vehicles transportation across the river.
