Brayman CEO Steve Muck was joined by State and local officials from Ohio and Kentucky for a ceremonial walk across the newly connected Ironton Russell Bridge. Both groups started on their respective sides of the river and walked out to meet in the middle at the location of the closure segment.

This event gave the state and local dignitaries as well as the media a chance to visit the bridge for a sneak peak now that it is possible to walk the full length. The event was covered by a variety of local news outlets:
