Asbestos Exposure in Covington, KY

Located at the confluence of the Ohio and Licking Rivers, and home to more than 40,000 people, Covington is the largest city in northern Kentucky, and fifth largest city in the state. It is also one of two county seats of Kenton County and part of the Cincinnati – Northern Kentucky metropolitan area. Incorporated in 1815, Covington has sixteen National Register historic districts; the largest number of historic districts for a city its size in Kentucky.

One of the most significant projects that spurred the economic growth of Covington was the decade-long construction of the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge between Covington and Cincinnati. Started in 1856, work on the bridge continued on and off until it opened in 1867, promoting further commerce between Kentucky and Ohio. Originally designed for horse cars and pedestrians, the bridge was reconstructed in the late 1890s to accommodate electric streetcars, and again a few years later for automobiles. During the early 1900s, many new commercial and governmental structures were constructed in Covington. However, post World War II, there was a substantial reduction in Covington’s manufacturing sector which caused a significant decline in the city's workforce as well as its resident population. Despite construction of the IRS service center by the federal government in the 1960s, which brought many new jobs to Covington, the city began a downward spiral of disinvestment, which continued for several decades. In the late 1970s, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development identified Covington as one of the country's "most distressed cities". However, by the late 1900s into the early 2000s, Covington experienced a period of redevelopment along its riverfront and skyline. Home to more than 3,800 diverse businesses, including two Fortune 500 firms, Covington strives to be a vital urban community with a strong economy.
