We are the Organization for a Better Southern Indiana, Inc. (OBSI). Some might say we are attempting to obstruct the Bridges Project, but we say we are trying to save our community. We understand that some or all the entire bridges project may be necessary and that there are multiple arguments to support the project. For the record, we are not anti-bridge and all but just a few isolated factions agree that the east end bridge is necessary, long overdue and that the downtown bridge if we are to believe what we are told is also critical to our transportation needs.
Tolling the three existing Ohio River bridges and Spaghetti Junction will be the most significant social-economic impact to hit our community in 50 years. No single event in the last half century has affected our local communities the way this will, and tolling will continue for the next three generations, continually increasing and possibility spreading to other local road projects, once it’s been accepted in our community.
