COVINGTON – Overlooking the Brent Spence Bridge from Covington’s Devou Park, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate and Lexington Mayor Jim Gray focused on strengthening Kentucky through infrastructure investments. At a press conference on Oct. 19, Gray named the Brent Spence Bridge the top infrastructure priority in Kentucky. Gray is running for U.S. Senate against Republican incumbent Rand Paul. “Building for the future and building modern infrastructure for a modern economy is essential for Kentucky’s competitiveness in a global economy,” Gray said. The Interstate 75 bridge tops Kentucky’s critical infrastructure needs, Gray said, because it is a safety risk as well as a national asset. The $2.6 billion replacement project has been discussed for years, but no definite plan has been proposed.
