Milton – Madison Bridge

A new bridge project, the Milton – Madison Bridge project will connect the two towns of Milton, Ky.,  and Madison, Ind. over the Ohio river, replacing the old toll bridge that used to connect the two towns.  Walsh Construction Company is teaming up with design firms, Burgess & Niple Engineers to build the new bridge.

I chose the article about the bridge because I wanted to learn about the process of how bridges are  constructed.  I have a passion for travel and this was a cool project to read about because it involved strengthening materials from an old bridge and putting in place on the new one.  I think this article portrays the construction in a positive way because it shows that some companies are willing to preserve pieces of history, while building something new and better for people to use.
