News roundup, 12/6/14

The Milton-Madison Bridge was recognized this week for its engineering innovation.

December 5, 2014 - The Milton-Madison Bridge Project is getting national recognition once more. At yesterday’s National ABC (Accelerated Bridge Construction) Conference in Miami, it was named “Best Project” for 2014 in the lateral slide category. Murray Johnson, with Buckland & Taylor, accepted the award on behalf of the project team, which also includes the Indiana Department of Transportation, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Walsh Construction, Michael Baker International and Burgess & Niple.

Elsewhere in bridges, the bridge over the Ohio River at Cannelton, Indiana, will be painted in 2016.

If you want to read a downer of a story about an Ohio River community in Ohio, check out this one about East Liverpool. It reads almost like ones the big-time media were writing about Portsmouth, Ohio, a few years ago. I was thinking the other day that either the drug and crime problems in Portsmouth have gone away, or the media have found another bright shiny object to write about.
