Northern Kentucky

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has restored the 11-ton weight limit on the historic Roebling Suspension Bridge.

In October, a routine inspection found some deterioration of one of the beams.  That led KYTC officials to impose a 3-ton weight restriction.

The repairs were finished Thursday.  A final inspection performed Friday determined the bridge could go back to the 11-ton weight limit.

An 11-mile walking and biking trail is the centerpiece of a new economic development plan unveiled Thursday for Northern Kentucky's riverfront.  Southbank Partners President Jack Moreland says Riverfront Commons would link six cities from Fort Thomas to Ludlow as part of Imagination 2020.

He says the trail would use a series of intersections called nodes to connect with places in each community.
