A study conducted on the Brent Spence Bridge Project revealed potential poll costs for drivers.

At a monthly meeting between the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) and Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council on Thursday, early modeling of a study showed a toll on the bridge could be on the 'lower end' of the $1-5 range.

Officials say the study is still in its early stages, and a toll rate has not been officially calculated or announced.

Nevertheless, ODOT says they are encouraged by study's findings.
