Group wants Ohio River Bridges Project lawsuit to go to trial

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A group is asking a federal judge to lets its lawsuit over the Ohio River Bridges Project go to trial.

The Louisville-based Coalition for the Advancement of Regional Transportation made the motion in federal court this week, just days after two other plaintiffs agreed to drop their portions of the suit.

The coalition is taking issue with reports last weekend that the settlement with those two plaintiffs removed serious obstacles to the project.  The coalition says there are serious "issues still remaining to be litigated."

The coalition has said the Bridges Project is a scheme to privatize the free interstate system and move businesses and jobs away from downtown Louisville.

It also claims the project will have significant negative economic, social, and environmental impacts on the community as a whole.
