Watch the webinar to learn about the challenges and lessons learned while completing The Brent Spence Bridge, where two agencies came together to ensure that the projects get completed promptly.
How to streamline collaboration with neighboring agencies to deliver major capital projects?
The Brent Spence Bridge connecting the state of Ohio and Kentucky and the Interstate 1-5 Bridge connecting the state of Washington and Oregon are two major bridge projects that required two agencies to come together and ensure that these projects get completed promptly to meet their community’s needs.
