Jerry Abramson made some interesting remarks about why Louisville is resorting to tolls while he tip-toed around Northern Kentucky:
Kentucky Lt. Governor Jerry Abramson explained why Louisville needed tolls to fund its $3.5 billion two-bridge project on the Ohio River.
“We had a reality check,” said Abramson, in remarks similar to what he told the Business Courier last August. “I’m not advocating for you one way or the other. But in Louisville, without tolls, we would not be building those bridges.”
You should read the entire piece. It’s all a mix of people coming up with various excuses for tolling.
