Debates Delay Painting of Roebling Bridge
Posted: 23-Jun-2004 7:57AM CDT

The John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge between Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky was last painted in 1980. Today the paint is chipping and the bridge is rusting; however, it is unlikely the bridge will be painted anytime soon. At one point, the bridge was planned to be repainted in 1998; however, Kentucky delayed the project because of construction on Fort Washington Way in Cincinnati. Now a debate over the color to paint the bridge and a tight budget has kept the $6 million project from being listed in the Six-Year Road Plan.
