LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- The Ohio River Bridges Project is soliciting public input on the impact of tolls on low-income and minority populations.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and Indiana Department of Transportation committed to a more extensive analysis of potential economic impacts of using tolls, which will help pay for the new bridges and highways under construction.

The Ohio River Bridges Project has published a draft assessment of the economic impacts of tolls on low-income and minority populations, including an evaluation of potential measures to mitigate disproportionate effects.

Meetings are set for:

---- Monday from 4 to 7 p.m. EDT at the Holiday Inn Clarksville, 505 Marriott Dr., Clarksville, Ind.

---- July 23 from 4 to 7 p.m. EDT at the Kentucky Center for African-American Heritage, 1701 W. Muhammad Ali Blvd., Louisville, Ky.
