Indiana Governor Mike Pence and Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin told a gathering at Ellis Park that they’re ready to expedite the bridge project.

Pence also announced that INDOT will be the lead agency, with Kentucky a full partner.

The group BridgeLink estimates the cost of the project at $850 million.
