LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The Ohio River Bridges Project is looking at the impact of proposed tolls, especially on low income and minority drivers.

So far its likely discounts won't be available for those groups because it would be difficult to monitor who should receive credits.

Project officials said they have some measures in place already to lessen the impact of tolls such as providing $20 million dollars to TARC in order to improve bus service across the river.

Two open house meetings are planned for July, but WHAS11’s Joe Arnold is talking to residents and officials Friday about the possibly reduction of rates for low income and minority drivers.

Joe wants to know your opinion on this matter: Should the poor & minorities pay lower toll rates on the new Ohio River Bridges?
