KY8 Bridge Web Home 132.jpg


The KY 8 Licking River Bridge is a vital multi-modal connection between Covington and Newport. Even with recent changes in daily commuting and travel patterns, this historic bridge carries a growing number of vehicles as well as a significant amount of pedestrian and bicycle traffic. 


The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) is currently studying various options for improving this aging structure that carries more than twice its intended daily capacity via 4th St. 

From planning to construction, every project is about improving safety, supporting jobs and economic growth, and providing better access for all who travel through our area. We know that providing safe and efficient connections supports our regional economy and keeps our communities strong. 

At the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC), our job is to ensure our infrastructure meets the needs of our growing population and businesses.
