Last piece of span blasted
MILTON, Ky. — Explosives have brought down the final section of the old Madison-Milton Bridge over the Ohio River. The demolition of the last 600-foot section of the 84-year-old span was moved up by a half hour Thursday morning to avoid poor weather conditions.
The remaining piers will be reinforced and widened at the top before a new bridge superstructure is put into place. The new 40-foot-wide bridge will be twice the size of the old span.
