MADISON, Indiana — The governors of Indiana and Kentucky are scheduled to attend a dedication ceremony for the new $103 million Madison-Milton Bridge next month.

The Madison Courier reports (http://bit.ly/1qWpyNk ) Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear will attend the Oct. 1 event.

The bridge was moved from temporary piers to its permanent spot in April. It took about 16 hours to slide the 30-million-pound steel truss. Highway officials say the truss, nearly a half-mile long, is the longest in North America to be slid laterally into place.

The bridge reopened to traffic on April 17. Work is continuing on a pedestrian sidewalk.
