In September of 2001, the new Licking Valley Girl Scouts Bridge on 11th St. in Covington and Newport opened. It replaced the older Shortway Bridge. The Shortway Bridge was originally a toll bridge; tolls were last collected in 1986. The bridge, a two lane structure constructed in 1914 and 1915, was closed to traffic on April 2, 2001 and was scheduled for demolition in June of 2003. The toll to cross the bridge had been ten cents for vehicles and one cent for pedestrians.
