Discussions regarding construction of a new bridge are unrelated to the maintenance work, officials said in a news release.
Hunter Hebert drives over the Brent Spence daily. He says the bridge is already a “nightmare” during rush hour, but he’s grateful for any repairs to the structure.
"It's needed repair. Everyone in town knows it's needed repair. I think the country at this point knows now it's needed repair,” Hebert said.
The Brent Spence Bridge was built to support about 80,000 to 100,000 vehicles per day. It currently carries twice that volume. Officials said the bridge is “structurally-sound and remains viable for long-term use.”
