Last Span of Madison, Indiana's Bridge Comes Down-- Part 1

From Wikipedia. //// Referred to as the Milton-Madison Bridge (also Harrison Street bridge), it connects Madison, Indiana, and Milton, Kentucky, and carries UD-421 across the Ohio River at that point. I had known that the bridge was to be demolished and saw in Friday's USA Today a small picture and caption: "The last section of the old U.S. 421 Madison-Milton Bridge is brought down with explosives Thursday in Madison, Ind." //// Some 10,000 cars a day use it as it is the only bridge over the Ohio River for 26 miles upstream and 46 miles downstream at Louisville. //// Reason for its demolition were that the old bridge was considered "functionally obsolete" and "structurally deficient." //// More to Come. --RoadDog
