Tolling isn’t expected to begin until late this year, but now is the time for residents to learn more about RiverLink. RiverLink is the new, all-‐electronic tolling system making the Louisville – Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges Project possible.
RiverLink open house events are planned for most Tuesdays and Thursdays in February and March, beginning Thursday, February 4.
The houses will be held in a number of locations across Louisville and Southern Indiana, ensuring information is accessible throughout the area.
Tolling is expected to begin late this year, when capacity is added to the system. That means either the improved John F. Kennedy Memorial Bridge or the new East End bridge will be complete and open to traffic.
The new Abraham Lincoln Bridge, the improved Kennedy Bridge and the new East End bridge will be tolled. Initial toll rates range from $1 to $12, depending on the size of the vehicle, whether a transponder is used and how often a driver crosses a tolled bridge.
The open house events will give drivers a chance to learn more about RiverLink, and ask any questions they may have. Displays will include information on how all-‐electronic tolling works, what transponders are available, what payment options exist and initial toll rates.
The Transit Authority of River City (TARC) and the Kentuckiana Regional Planning & Development Agency (KIPDA) will also be available to discuss cross-‐river routes and the Ticket to Ride rideshare program.
Here is a schedule of RiverLink open house events:
All open houses are scheduled for 5:30 – 7:00 p.m., with the exception of the open house on Tuesday, February 23 at Portland Community Center. It’s scheduled for 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
