WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) issued the following statement on the final federal approval of the Ohio River Bridges Project:

“This is the final signature needed from the federal government to begin construction of the Bridges Project,” Yarmuth said. “I received personal assurances from Transportation Secretary LaHood and President Obama that the federal approval process would be expedited, and they have followed through on those commitments. Nothing else stands in the way of construction, and I look forward to breaking ground on the East End Bridge later this month.”
