Tolling on 3 Ohio River bridges begins Friday at 4 a.m.
Although tolling starts Friday morning, drivers should not expect anything to change, so there will be no requirement to stop, slow down or look for a toll booth.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Big changes are coming to the Ohio River bridges on Friday morning as tolling begins on three bridges.
"First thing on Friday, around four o’clock in the morning, tolling is going to begin on the Kennedy, the Lincoln and the Lewis and Clark bridge," said Mindy Peterson, spokesperson for the Ohio River Bridges Project.
Although tolling starts Friday morning, drivers should not expect anything to change. There will be no requirement to stop, slow down or look for a toll booth. It will all be handled electronically.
"If you have a transponder in a passenger vehicle, it’s going to cost $2 to cross one of the tolled bridges," Peterson said. "If you don’t have a transponder, it’s going to cost $4 in a passenger vehicle. So it is double. It is a big difference."
If you open a RiverLink account and don't cross a toll bridge within a year, there will be a small fee.
"After a full year, 365 days, an inactivity fee begins, and that inactivity fee is $5 a month until that account is depleted," Peterson said.
If you do open a RiverLink account and do not use is for a year, you will be charged a $5 inactivity fee.
