Voinovich, U.S. official to tour Brent Spence



The Enquirer

U.S. Sen. George Voinovich, R-Ohio, and U.S. Transportation Department assistant secretary for policy Emil Frankel will be in Cincinnati Monday to get a briefing on the status of the Brent Spence Bridge and take a tour of the 40-year-old structure, officials with the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments said Wednesday.

Voinovich has been vocal about the need for more transportation spending nationally and has used the Brent Spence as an example of why the money is needed. Kentucky state highway officials are studying potential options for replacing the bridge, which could cost $750 million or more, according to preliminary estimates.
