Brent Spence Bridge Corridor February 29, 2024 eNewsletter
The recent public hearings for the Brent Spence Bridge Corridor project's supplemental environmental assessment brought strong participation from community members. A mix of in-person and virtual attendees engaged with the proposed plans for the new bridge and highway, facilitated by representatives of the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) and Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC).
The 555 participants had the opportunity to listen to a presentation by the project team and offer specific concerns or suggestions. Stakeholder involvement throughout the project’s development allows the perspectives of the communities served to be considered in the decision-making process.
Anyone who couldn't attend the public hearings can still review the plans at and offer comments by March 8, 2024, in the following ways:

Continuing our "Community Voices" series, we’re sharing videos from local leaders across Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati.
In this edition’s videos, Eric Kearney, President and CEO of the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky African American Chamber of Commerce, and Brent Cooper, President and CEO of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, share their thoughts on how this project will impact the region.
Kearney discusses the way communities will be impacted by the project: "Maybe you don’t get an opportunity to work on building the bridge, but you may get an opportunity to rebuild part of the neighborhood that has become more accessible because of the work of the Brent Spence Project,” he says. “It’s going to be monumental.”
Cooper talks about the far-reaching impacts that this project will have, even beyond the obvious industries: "It impacts every major growth industry that we have: advanced manufacturing, of course logistics, but healthcare, IT, finance, construction, you name it. Every major industry is impacted by the bridge.”
Stretching from the Western Hills Viaduct in Ohio to Dixie Highway in Kentucky, the $3.6 billion project will be built without tolls and transform an eight-mile portion of the I-71/75 interstate corridor, including a companion bridge immediately to the west of the existing bridge. More information about the project is available at A video outlining last year’s progress can be viewed here.
