Closures for Milton-Madison Bridge

State officials have announced the planned dates for the first of two five-day closures during the replacement of the Milton-Madison Bridge. The bridge will be closed April 25-29, during which time crews will work around the clock to remove the existing approaches on both sides of the river and attach the temporary approaches to the 82-year-old Ohio River span. During the closure, travelers will be routed 26 miles east to the Markland Dam linking Gallatin County, Ky., and Switzerland County, Ind., or 46 miles west to Louisville. A ferry will be in place for emergency services only.
