Tight Budget Holds up Repainting of Roebling Suspension Bridge
Posted: 24-May-2004 5:38PM CDT

Area leaders are concerned about the state of the John A. Roebling Bridge over the Ohio River between Covington and Cincinnati. While the L&N Bridge and I-471 bridge have recently been repainted, the suspension bridge still suffers from exterior rusting. State transportation officials say the exterior rust poses no danger to the integrity of the bridge and that the over $6 million price tag is delaying the repainting effort.
