Milton – Madison bridge slide

On April 10, 2014, the slide of the Milton-Madison Bridge was completed. At nearly a half-mile long, this is the longest bridge slide of its type in North America, perhaps the world. The slide occurred over a two day period with the actual slide time being approximately 12 1/2 hours. The total slide distance was 55 feet, going from temporary piers to refurbished, permanent piers.

The bridge connects Milton, KY and Madison, IN. More info on the project here.

    Took ’em long enough! On the temporary piers, the bridge had a 3T weight limit… shit, the Indomitable DuraMax Van weighs that much empty, not to mention the tight turns at both ends. Maybe now I can get to Madison without going all the way through Louisville!

    BTW, Madison is a cool little town, got some nice craft beer bars. It’s most notable as the home of the annual Madison Regatta, if you like Unlimited Hydrofoil racing on the Ohio river.
