Cross-River Traffic Has Declined in First Months Since the $2.3 Billion Ohio River Bridges Opened

WDRB reports, “Kentucky and Indiana spent $2.3 billion to build two new Ohio River bridges, untangle the Spaghetti Junction interchange in Louisville and strengthen the Kennedy Bridge. . . . But despite those investments, there are fewer vehicles crossing the Ohio than before construction began on the bridges, according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. ‘We are not seeing that there is an increased number of traffic crossings across the river than there were before the project started — yet,’ said Megan McLain, the cabinet’s assistant general counsel.”
