Toll bridge? It could happen.
Even though Kentucky legislators dropped the idea of charging tolls on a new Brent Spence Bridge, and stacks of local officials have denounced the notion, the concept still lives in Washington.
That's the word from Ohio Sen. George Voinovich, a member of the Senate committee in charge of hashing out ways to pay for roads and bridges nationwide, including the Brent Spence. Voinovich said he has no objection to using a toll system where necessary.
"Sure, it’s going to be one of the options. It’s got to be looked at," Voinovich said.
