Milton-Madison Bridge Slide

The Milton–Madison Bridge is a continuous truss bridge that connects Milton, Kentucky and Madison, Indiana, USA. The old structure was replaced with a completely new continuous truss which was constructed on temporary piers adjacent to the operational span between 2011 and 2012 and pushed into place after demolition of the old span using a construction method called 'truss sliding.'

On April 10, 2014, the slide of the Milton-Madison Bridge was completed. The slide occurred over a two day period with the actual slide time being approximately 12 1/2 hours.
