New study on Brent Spence Bridge fuels fight over tolls
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- A new study of the Brent Spence Bridge could add new fuel to the fight over tolls.
State representative Dale Mallory said an $8 million study would look at the impact of tolls on minority and low-income drivers. Tolls have been proposed as one way to finance the project to replace the aging span that is functionally obsolete.
The study will also look at other economic consequences of replacing the bridge and any environmental concerns.
Replacing the Brent Spence Bridge has a price tag of around $2 billion.
