Another Brent Spence Bridge meeting was held to discuss project's financing.
The 'Build Our New Bridge Now' Coalition met with the Kentucky Transportation officials on Wednesday evening.
The coalition believes the best way to speed up bridge construction is through private financing.
In addition, they pressed that a public-private partnership would be the only way to get the $2.7 billion bridge built by 2018, rather than 2022.
Opponents of the partnership say the proposal would mean tolls on the bridge for drivers.
