Bridge to everywhere

The federal government has given its approval to the latest downtown bridge design, according to an official with the Kentucky Department of Transportation. The decision paves the way for construction of the Ohio River Bridges Project, a $29 billion mega-project that includes six new downtown bridges, two in the East End and a full reconstruction of the downtown traffic grid. Construction is expected to begin tomorrow, when local zoning officials will claim nearby properties under eminent domain laws.
