Raising expectations

The complex procedure for the construction of an 183m-long steel truss span over the Ohio River from Milton, Kentucky to Madison, Indiana is presented in this article, as the first of several milestones in the replacement of the Milton Madison Bridge. In order to minimize bridge closure time, the design-build team decided to build the two main river spans on barges and float them into position, then lift them into their temporary position (float-out and span lift). Challenges and solutions throughout the process are discussed.
