Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels and Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear have applied for federal funding for two long-sought bridge
projects on the Ohio River.

Joint applications have been submitted by the Indiana Department of Transportation
and Kentucky Transportation Cabinet for a combined $120 million from a federal stimulus grant program.

Of the money,
$95 million would be used to replace the aged and obsolete Milton-Madison Bridge, which connects Milton, Ky., and Madison.

The application also seeks $25 million to repair and renovate the Big Four Bridge, a one-time railroad bridge that
would become a bicycle and pedestrian connection to the developed riverfronts in Louisville and Jeffersonville.
