Bridge #97 Replacement

After a 15-year closure, a historic, single-lane, single-span steel truss bridge was removed and salvaged to make way for the new, two-lane, three-span modernized bridge over Killbuck Creek in Madison County, Indiana. The existing channel of Killbuck Creek was realigned in order to reduce a large skewed crossing to a 30 degree skewed crossing to help alleviate nearby flooding. Additionally, the existing retaining wall was reconstructed and lengthened to protect the Fork Creek tributary that runs along the eastbound lane. This project improved the overall hydraulic performance, enhanced vehicular safety, reconnected sections of Madison County, and provided a more direct route for nearby residents.
