President Obama to Travel to Cincinnati, Deliver Remarks at Brent Spence Bridge

WASHINGTON – On Thursday, September 22, the President will travel to Cincinnati, Ohio, to deliver remarks at the Brent Spence Bridge, urging Congress to pass the American Jobs Act now so that we can make much-needed investments in infrastructure projects across the country and put more Americans back to work.

The Brent Spence Bridge is on one of the busiest trucking routes in North America, yet it is considered ‘functionally obsolete’ because it is in need of so many significant repairs.  If Congress passes the American Jobs Act, we can put more Americans back to work while getting repairs like this done.
