BRADENTON, Fla. — Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear is proposing to fund his state’s half of the massive $2.6 billion Ohio River Bridges Project with federal funds and toll revenue bonds over the next six years.

In the state’s 2012-2018 recommended highway plan, released late last week, Beshear called for Kentucky to use $300 million in direct federal aid, $236 million of grant anticipation revenue vehicle bonds, known as Garvees, and $846.2 million of revenue bonds backed by tolls.
