Meetings for public concern about bridge tolls

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- People are concerned about how much it will cost them to cross the river.

Transportation Department Officials are asking for input from the public before they implement a toll. State transportation leaders say the details surrounding the tolls on the bridges are still a work in progress.

State transportation leaders are trying to gather information on how the bridge tolls could affect lower-income residents who are forced to cross the river every day.

Bridge project leaders say commuters who cross the bridges every day will probably pay about a dollar per crossing. Those who cross less frequently will pay more like two dollars each time.

Tolls will only affect the Downtown Crossing, the Kennedy Bridge, and the East End bridges. The Sherman-Minton Bridge and the Clark Memorial Bridge will not have tolls.

Public meetings will be held on Monday and Tuesday for people to come in, and voice their concerns. The open house meetings will be held on Monday at the Holiday Inn in Clarksville from 4 to 7, and then Tuesday at the same time at the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage in Downtown Louisville.
