Carrying Interstate 71/75 over the Ohio River, the Brent Spence Bridge is the cornerstone of the vital I-75 corridor between Ohio and Kentucky. With growth in the region and the entire eastern United States, the number of cars and trucks that travel over the bridge far exceeds the number of vehicles it was designed to carry when it was opened in 1963. While the bridge is structurally sound and will remain in service for decades to come, the Brent Spence Bridge Corridor Project will construct a critical companion bridge to the existing Brent Spence Bridge, improve traffic flow on the existing bridge, and construct improvements to the interstate network throughout an eight-mile corridor from the Western Hills Viaduct in Ohio to the Dixie Highway in Kentucky.

By refurbishing the existing Brent Spence Bridge and constructing a companion bridge to the west of it, additional capacity that separates local and through traffic will be gained, thereby improving safety and easing congestion to the benefit of people on each side of the Ohio River and across the country. In addition, this project will support local business growth while also improving one of the most important national corridors for commerce and freight stretching from Michigan to Florida on I-75.

Currently, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) are working together to secure much-needed funds being made available through the Bipartisan Infrastructure law and to ensure the infrastructure meets the needs of a growing region.
