CINCINNATI - The much-anticipated Brent Spence Bridge Project is getting a new estimate on construction costs and schedule impact.
The Cincinnati chapter of the American Society of Professional Estimators (ASPE) conducted their April 2013 meeting Thursday to learn about the design, cost and schedule of the proposed Brent Spence Bridge project between Cincinnati and Covington.
Joe Vogel, Planning and Engineering Administrator for ODOT District 8 and Robert Hans, Chief District Engineer with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet District 6 presented information on the the currently estimated $2.5 billion project.
More than 170,000 vehicles cross the bridge each day. The structure is considered functionally obsolete in part because of a lack of a shoulder and smaller than standard lanes.
The Brent Spence Bridge replacement and refurbishment is a joint priority of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) and the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT).
The local ASPE chapter met at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Blue Ash.
