Authorities propose 50 percent discount on tolls for drivers frequenting Brent Spence Bridge

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Authorities say they are going to cut the price of tolls to speed up plans to build a new Ohio River bridge.

The Brent Spence Bridge carries I-71 and I-75 from Covington, Kentucky to Cincinnati. Today the governors of Kentucky and Ohio proposed giving drivers who use the bridge often a 50 percent discount on tolls.

Plans call for replacing the decaying bridge. The states will equally share the $2.6 billion cost.

The Kentucky legislature still needs to approve the plan. So far, it has been unwilling to approve tolls as a way to pay for it.
