Brent Spence Bridge

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet

A new study says a second bridge is needed to help ease traffic congestion over the Ohio River between northern Kentucky and Cincinnati. The Kentucky Transportation Department released results of the yearlong study on Tuesday, saying a second bridge, in addition to the Brent Spence Bridge, would improve safety and travel in the region.

Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear says it will cost taxpayers $7 million every month lawmakers do not take action to replace the Brent Spence Bridge connecting northern Kentucky with Cincinnati.
