Preliminary Alternatives for Brent Spence Bridge Replacement Announced
Posted: 30-Jan-2004 10:05PM CST

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has released a set of six preliminary corridors to examine during the study on how to best replace or rehabilitate the Brent Spence Bridge over the Ohio River in Northern Kentucky. All options include the construction of at least one new bridge and many would separate I-71 traffic from I-75 traffic.

The Kentucky Post has maps of each of the six corridors under review: Option 1 [Outside Link], Option 2 [Outside Link], Option 3 [Outside Link], Option 4 [Outside Link], Option 5 [Outside Link], Option 6 [Outside Link]

Completion of the bridge project and other Northern Kentucky projects could be delayed due to state budge problems. Federal aid is key to completing the bridge project.
