JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. Demolition of the old Madison-Milton Bridge linking Indiana and Kentucky over the Ohio River has been delayed.

Highway officials from the two states said Tuesday that the first explosion on the 700-foot span has been postponed because of predictions of high water levels and swift current on the Ohio River.

The blast is now scheduled for next Monday morning, depending on weather and river conditions. The new $100 million Ohio River bridge will link Madison, Ind., and Milton, Ky.
