For the first time ever, there was a tie. INDOT/KYTC’s Ohio River Bridges project and the Naperville Centralized Transportation Management System.
The Louisville-Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges Project was designed to improve safety, alleviate traffic, connect highways and create economic development.
