The Brent Spence Bridge Corridor project will include changes proposed by the Cincinnati Department of Transportation & Engineering – a wider design that will create additional connectivity and the potential to support future development.
The proposed Ezzard Charles Drive bridge would widen the overpass without changing the crossing distance, while potentially allowing for enhanced landscaping, social gathering areas and small retail development. The wider bridge would improve connectivity and create a gateway for the Cincinnati Museum Center and the West End neighborhood.
The need to widen the Ezzard Charles bridge emerged following recent public outreach meetings and is a testament to the strong coordination between ODOT and the City of Cincinnati.
