LEBANON, Ohio (AP) - Ohio transportation authorities say major work has been completed on new bridges on Interstate 71 between Columbus and Cincinnati.

They had a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday for the $88 million Jeremiah Morrow Bridge Project in southwest Ohio. Officials say the minor work that remains will have minimal impact on traffic. Work began in 2010.

They expect the bridges to enhance safety and commerce, carrying 40,000 vehicles a day.

The new structures are Ohio’s tallest bridges at 239 feet above the Little Miami River and among the state’s longest bridges spanning nearly 2,300 feet.

They will carry two lanes in each direction, with room to add a third lane.

The twin spans are named for a former Ohio governor, congressman and U.S. senator.
