LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A group that opposes two new planned Ohio River bridges is asking a judge to force Indiana and Kentucky to halt spending on the projects.

The Coalition for the Advancement of Regional Transportation, or CART, made the request. It's asking for an injunction in Louisville. CART wants a federal judge to stop the states from spending on the bridges until he rules on a federal lawsuit challenging the project or a new environmental report is issued.

CART argues the bridges would cause environmental damage and ruin neighborhoods.
