A detailed analysis of cost-saving measures for the Louisville-Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges Project says at least $1.2 billion could be trimmed off the previously estimated $4.1 billion price tag.
When proposed by Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels and Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer earlier this year, officials believed the measures would save $500 million. The savings would reduce the estimated cost of the project to $2.9 billion
