Toll charge for new Brent Spence Bridge to be imposed

By Jason Williams

Passenger vehicles might only have to pay $1 to cross a new Brent Spence Bridge between Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati if tolls are used to pay for the project.

Preliminary results of a study being conducted to map out a finance plan for the bridge replacement show toll rates will not exceed $2 one-way for passenger vehicles.

“Initial models show we’re going to be on the low end of the $1 to $5 range,” said Steve Faulkner, spokesman for the Ohio Department of Transportation. “But it’s really too early to tell right now.”
