Southern loop may be dream really worth dreaming about

 Many years ago, officials in nearby Jefferson County thought they needed a loop around the southern portion of its community.

At the time, there wasn’t a lot of growth. The area wasn’t particularly full of lavish, expensive subdivisions.

And there probably weren’t a lot of votes to be had by aspiring politicians.

Instead, the Gene Snyder Freeway was a dream. It is was completed a small piece a little at a time.

And, who would have thought the two bridges over the Ohio River would be built?
