  • will reduce traffic in Spaghetti Junction and the existing bridges.
  • can be constructed without disrupting regional traffic flow.
  • is supported by the vast majority of citizens on both sides of the river.

  • can be completed in less than four years.
  •  

    The bridge we need has been delayed for more than four decades. We're so close. Please help Louisville take the next step. We can have a stronger regional economy. We can have a spectacular city, that's connected to the Ohio River and thrives by attracting young, creative people. It's time for real positive change.

    It's time to take action.
