Note: The Milton-Madison bridge will remain open for all but 10 days during this project. It will be open for Regatta and other major festivals. For the latest bridge updates and live camera click here.
The first week of bridge closure will be Wednesday 25 April 2012 until Sunday 29 April 2012.
During those dates, traffic will be shifted to the new temporary ramps. Drivers are expected to use the temporary ramps for approximately nine months while construction continues on the temporary piers and new truss bridge just west of the existing bridge.
One major impact will be the new traffic flow along Ferry Street, beside Key West Shrimp House. The intersection of SR 56 and Ferry St. will convert to a 3-way stop. A 3-way stop will be placed at Ferry St. and Vaughn Dr. in Madison.

During the planned five-day closure, ferry service will be provided to carry emergency vehicles across the river from the Milton boat ramp to a temporary boat ramp at Ferry St. in Madison. The Milton boat ramp will be closed to boaters during the closure period. During the closure, drivers will detour to the Markland Locks and Dam Bridge, 26 miles upstream, or Louisville, 46 miles downstream.
