Kentucky's Lieutenant governor will be in Northern Kentucky on the Purple People Bridge this morning to present a check to help developers proceed with a 100-million dollar entertainment complex.



A release from Representative Dennis Keene says the 650-thousand dollars from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will fund an engineering study that will determine if the historic pedestrian bridge can support the project. The Newport Southbank Bridge company is currently in talks with three developers interested in the project.
