The sun beams down overhead as the fog burns off the Ohio River at the Madison, Indian bridge. Just a few minutes longer, and it completely dissipated.
Part of the Ohio River Scenic Byway, the Madison-Milton Bridge, AKA Harrison Street Bridge, is US Route 421 crossing the Ohio River between Madison, Indiana, and Milton, Kentucky.
The first bridge was constructed in 1928-29 and was a 20-foot wide metal truss bridge. Built as a toll bridge, drivers, paid 45 cents and walkers 5 cents to cross it. In 1947 it finally became a free bridge.
In 2012-13, a new 40-foot wide bridge was assembled on barges and lifted into place on temporary piers before being slid onto the original ones. The new bridge won awards for its unique construction
