Milton Commission gets update on bridge project

Milton City Commissioners heard updates on the Ohio River bridge project during a meeting Thursday night.
Debbie Crawford, the city's bridge liaison, told commissioners work continues as weather allows. The recent subzero temperatures stalled work for a few days, but crews hope to be able to pour the concrete for pier four on Monday.
The strengthened pier will need to cure before the bridge slide, which may take place in mid-February.
Crawford said demolition of the old bridge pier near Madison is expected to be Jan. 14. The first blast will fracture the pier, and another blast on Jan. 17 will fracture the concrete underwater.
More information will be released just a few weeks before the bridge slide, she said.
In other business:
Commissioners discussed the dimensions of the city's gateway signs. Commissioners approved the purchase of the signs from Timbers Custom Signs of Hanover during the December meeting.
"I'd like to have them up by spring, if possible," Mayor Denny Jackson said.
Commissioners had an executive session to discuss personnel issues. No action was taken.
