Group files suit against Ohio River Bridges Project

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A group called the Coalition for the Advancement of Regional Transportation, or CART, has filed a suit against the Ohio River Bridges Project.

CART claims the multi-billion dollar project leaves no money for public transportation and prevents any improvements to the regional public transportation system.

The group added the bridges project will provide very little benefit to most residents in Kentuckiana.

CART'S lawsuit makes 14 claims against the Ohio River Bridges Project, including civil rights violations.

CART historically has been behind a plan for a light rail system and believes local politicians scrapped the plan for the bridges project.
