Milton-Madison Bridge demolition rescheduled for Thursday, Sept. 19

The explosive demolition of the last remaining section of the old Milton-Madison Bridge has been moved to Thursday, Sept. 19. The 600-foot section will be brought down using controlled explosives. Because of the span’s proximity to downtown Milton, businesses and residents in that area are asked to stay indoors starting at 8:45 a.m. until after the blast.

When: 9 a.m. Thursday, Sept 19

The new U.S. 421 bridge and roads within the 1,000-foot safety perimeter will close starting at approximately 9 a.m. and are expected to reopen to traffic at or before 11 a.m. The blast itself should occur shortly after 9 a.m.

Details: Similar to the three previous blasts, a 1,000-foot safety perimeter will be established around the blast zone. Recreational boaters are required to stay 1,000 feet from the bridge. An FAA no-fly zone of 2,000 feet will be in effect prior to and during the blast.
