Councilman wants to take closer look at Brent Spence Bridge designs

The safety of the $2.4 billion Brent Spence Project remains priority number one, but now councilman Chris Bortz wants to take a closer look at the new designs.

Currently ODOT, Ohio Department of Transportation, has decided on three main options.

The first alternative has a design that features an arch across the bridge. Another option is a design with a single tower cable system. The third is a two tower cable system.

Bortz asked the Brent Spence Bridge Project Manager if the traffic pattern could be changed to allow people coming into Cincinnati take the top level view unlike the current flow on the Brent Spence.
