The Department of Awesome Engineering Achievements presents this amazing time-lapse video in which we get to watch the Milton-Madison Bridge, a half-mile long truss bridge connecting Milton, KY and Madison, IN, slide 55 feet over to sit atop its brand new piers.
"On April 10, 2014, the slide of the Milton-Madison Bridge was completed. At nearly a half-mile long, this is the longest bridge slide of its type in North America, perhaps the world. The slide occurred over a two day period with the actual slide time being approximately 12 1/2 hours. The total slide distance was 55 feet, going from temporary piers to refurbished, permanent piers."
