Low income, minority bridge toll study facing delays

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Officials say the downtown bridge is 38 percent complete, which means it is on track to be finished by late 2016.

At a meeting Wednesday afternoon, Kentucky officials talked about construction, tolls and a plan that will analyze how the tolls will affect low-income and minority commuters.

In 2016, tolls will be collected on the existing Kennedy Bridge, the new bridge carrying northbound I-65 traffic and the east end bridge.

However, the Clark Memorial and Sherman Minton will remain toll free.

David Waldner, director of the Division of Environmental Analysis, said the delays should not affect progress for the company chosen earlier this year to provide transponders for bridges project. He expects the study to be complete by the end of the year.

There is a public meeting in Jeffersonville next week to discuss the tolling company chosen.
