Workers slide piece of Ohio River bridge into place

MIDDLEBURY, Ind. -

It took less than two hours to slide a 100-foot concrete section into place on a bridge connecting Indiana and Kentucky.

Workers moved a massive new section of the Milton-Madison bridge into place on the Kentucky side of the Ohio River Thursday. The slide is a precursor to the movement of the main half-mile-long steel truss section of the bridge, which is expected to take place later this month. ​

Structural engineers say bridge will be safe to reopen to traffic after it is moved onto the permanent piers.
