Madison County 8th Street Bridge

THIS PROJECT IS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION.  CHECK BACK OFTEN TO WATCH THE PROJECT ADVANCE TO COMPLETION.

Madison County Bridge No. 502 carries 8th Street over the White River in Anderson, Indiana. The existing bridge has an ADT of nearly 15,000 vehicles per day and serves as a gateway into Downtown Anderson. The U.S. Department of Transportation selected this project in 2016 as one of 40 approved projects out of 585 submitted projects, as a recipient of funds through the highly competitive Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) Grant Funding Program. The total project cost is an estimated $18 million, of which $13.5 million will be funded through the Tiger Grant Program. The existing ten-span, prestressed concrete, I-Beam bridge will be replaced with a new six-span, prestressed concrete, U-Beam bridge which includes a composite concrete deck. The grade of the bridge will be flattened from 6.6% to 4.9%. New sidewalks, ADA ramps, and LED lighting will be added to each side of the bridge to promote safety for non-motorized users.
