lost jobs

I took an engineering job across the bridge. It took me an hour to go 20 miles on I-75 across the bridge. It was the same time to drive cross county highway to I-275 thru Indiana. I found another job just to avoid using the nightmarish traffic on the Brent Spence bridge.

Long way is faster

Growing tired of the delays surrounding the BSB the straw that broke the camels back came when a five hour trip went to eight hours because of the snarl of traffic. It has been over a year since I have used BSB and don’t plan on going that way again.

I am a young professional that grew up on the Ohio side of the river but moved to Northern Kentucky when I graduated from college because it was significantly cheaper to live there and much closer to the city. I work downtown and commute over the Brent Spence Bridge twice every day. I love the […]

The Brent Spence bridge is ruining my life. Every single day no matter what time of the day the bridge finds a way to remind me that it runs Cincinnati. I used to think it was the drivers who were the causation but I slowly realized that the bridge was the culprit. Rusting, swaying, ugly […]

The job not taken…

Earlier this year I was laid off from an 11 year career with my employer. I was offered a high paying position in downtown Cincinnati with an excellent company.

Epic Trips to NKY

While I normally harbor disdain for that word (epic), I can’t help it. Every trip to NKY becomes a roadtrip instead of a commute. I used to work in Florence and live in Cincinnati, and it was faster to take 471-275 than it was to take the Brent Spence. That meant looping out by NKU […]

Does the bridge need replaced? Yes. Is the bridge the main problem with crossing the Ohio River? No. This may be controversial but I’ve been driving this route from N. KY to Cincinnati and back for just over 17 years. If you look carefully the real issue, it is the on and off ramp locations […]

Authored by R Hackett I used to sit in so much traffic once I left my home in Florence, KY on my way to work at Procter & Gamble in St. Bernard. I could never predict what time I would make it into the office as a result of daily traffic congestion, accidents, construction, blinding […]

By Amberley While on vacation in Fla with my grandparents in 1980, we had to travel across the Sunshine skyway bridge. As we passed the collapsed section, my grandfather told us that many people had lost their lives. It was an eerie sight, that stayed with me. Over the course of the years, I’ve heard […]
