UGRR Section 3, maps 35 & 36 - 2014
« on: March 11, 2014, 09:48:59 am »
The final stage of the new bridge over the Ohio River from Madison, IN to Milton. KY is now taking place. It is unclear when this phase will be complete. You can check the progress here: http://www.miltonmadisonbridge.com/news-center/

During the closure, you will need to take the following detour recommended by a local cyclist.

Northbound on map 35:
0(0 km)Continue straight (east) on SR 56. 20(32)Vevay. Route becomes SR 156. * 26(42)Turn left onto SR 101. Cross Ohio River, enter Kentucky. Route becomes SR 1039. * 33.5(54)Ride over I-71. SR 1039 curves left. Turn right onto Boone Rd./SR 465. * 35(56)Turn right onto Sparta Pike/SR 35. 37(59)Sparta. Rejoin route on map 36.

Southbound on map 36:
* 20.5(33)Sparta. Turn right onto Sparta Pike/SR 35. * 22.5(36)Turn left onto Boone Rd/SR 465. * 24(39)Turn left onto SR 1039. Ride over I-71. * 31.5(51)Cross Ohio River, enter Indiana. Turn right onto SR 156. 37.5(60)Vevay. Route becomes SR 56. 57.5(92)Madison. Rejoin route on map 35.

NOTE: SR 56 is not in great shape -- it is broken in places and there is no shoulder -- and you will be sharing it with 55 mph traffic. Ride with caution.

The Madison-Milton bridge is now open. There is still construction underway for the next few weeks but detours are no longer required:
