About RiverLink

RiverLink is the tolling system for the Louisville­-Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges Project. The project includes the new Abraham Lincoln Bridge in downtown Louisville (I­-65), the revamping of the existing Kennedy Bridge in downtown Louisville (also I­-65), the new Lewis And Clark Bridge connecting the extension of the Snyder Freeway (I­-265) with Southern Indiana (state road 265) and the rebuilding of the I­-65, I­-64 and I­-71 interchanges. The system features all­-electronic tolling, which requires no toll booths, no coin machines, no lines and no stopping.

How All-Electronic Tolling Works

Tolling takes place on the Abraham Lincoln Bridge, the Kennedy Bridge and the new Lewis And Clark Bridge. Sensors and video cameras are placed on each of these bridges. Drivers have the choice of using a transponder or having the system capture a photo of their license plate. Read More...


A transponder is an electronic device that typically is placed inside the front windshield of your vehicle. There are two types of RiverLink transponders. One type is a RiverLink local transponder that works only on the local tolled bridges within the Greater Louisville/Southern Indiana Metro area. Your first local tag per vehicle is free.

Registered Plate Capture

Those choosing not to use a transponder may also open a prepaid account and register their license plate with the system. With each crossing, cameras will recognize the license plate and automatically deduct the proper toll from the account. Read More...

Unregistered Plate Capture

The third option requires no preregistration. Each vehicle’s license plate is photographed and the owner is sent an invoice in the mail. This method has the highest tolls as administrative costs are highest. Read More...
