I’m sure once the new companion bridge is built, the older one will be taken from service for refurbishing whether or not it needed it.

I'm very familiar with this bridge. Originally intended to carry 2 lanes on the top deck and 2 lanes on the bottom deck, it now no longer has a breakdown lane and has 4 narrow lanes on each deck.

It's a traffic bottleneck when traffic is flowing, and a huge annoyance when it isn't. (Remember, the Cincinnati airport is in northern Kentucky.) There has been serious discussion and planning about what to do for about 10 years. The issue is exactly how to do the changeover, not whether or not this bridge needs to be replaced or refurbished.
