    The article on traffic congestion in Louisville is really bad reporting. Had the author done any reasonable homework he would have known 2 bridges were built at the same time, one up river next to a massive employment center in Indiana and lots of suburbs on the Kentucky side. Lots of downtown traffic, including lots of truck traffic switched to that east end bridge. There is some toll avoiding onto an untolled west end bridge and a surface street bridge next to the downtown bridge. But you can’t tell the full story without looking at traffic counts for all 5 bridges. The predictions of future traffic used to sell the bridges was vastly inflated as well.
