The governors of both Ohio and Kentucky have maintained the necessity for tolls in building a new Brent Spence Bridge over the Ohio River despite the unpopularity of that option in Northern Kentucky.

Northern Kentucky’s variety of bridges should make the prospect of tolls easier than in Louisville and other places that have fewer bridges, Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear told The Enquirer this month.

Tolling all the bridges equally and reasonably should mitigate that effect, and provide funds to maintain the other bridges as well - but I guess nobody thought of that.

establish independent authorities full of political hacks and private business rejects.... and sock it to 'em... raise tolls year after year.. to support bloated budgets approved by folks the voters can't remove.....

works just great here in Nj , Pa, and Ny...

Pretty neat bridges (there must be 4 or 5 generations of bridge structures displayed). Glad to see some States keep up with infrastructure upgrades and improvements. Almost novel: gas taxes levied actually used for roadways. Doesn't happen here very often.
