Bridge to Crimea

The earlier controversy between Ukraine and Russian about Crimea seems to be resolved. Russia is building a bridge to Crimea across the Kerch Strait. The price of the bridge keeps increasing because of adding a road and tracks for transport. Commuters will be charged a toll to cross the bridge. The bridge will be 11.8 miles long and cost approximately $8.1 billion. The original idea was that the bridge would be built by prisoners who are eligible to work outside the prison but the idea was shot down because they said they did not have the right to use prisoners as construction workers.
