Dedication ceremony planned for Milton-Madison Bridge

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A dedication ceremony for the new $103 million Madison-Milton Bridge is planned for next month.

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear will attend the event, planned for Oct. 1.

The bridge was moved from temporary piers to its permanent spot in April. It took about 16 hours to slide the steel truss.

Organizers say it's the longest span in North America to be slid laterally into place.

Work is continuing on a pedestrian sidewalk.
