Working together with the Aesthetics Committee and bridge architect Miguel Rosales of Rosales + Partners, the project team developed four signature bridge concepts to move forward for final consideration.

After several months of deliberation and careful consideration, KYTC selected Concept 1 as the Approved Bridge Type design, with a signature aesthetic design and an emphasis on safety.


Each of the four concepts features a signature aesthetic design that considers the surrounding environment including the nearby historic neighborhoods of Newport and Covington. Each is also rooted in safety, featuring two 12-foot-wide shared-use pathways for walkers and bicyclists. These pathways are separated from vehicular traffic and meet all standards set by the Americans with Disabilities Act and other guidance for railing height and sidewalk width. Traffic calming features are being considered for the final design. These may include lane-width, intersection features and markings.

Concept 1 - Arch

Concept 3 - Inclined Arch

Concept 2 - Cable-Stayed

Concept 4 - Suspension

Next Steps


The concepts were presented to the City of Covington and City of Newport during the Tuesday, August 15, and Monday, September 25 commission meetings, respectively.
