Toll rates are updated every year
New toll rates for three bridges connecting Louisville and Southern Indiana begin July 1, 2023. Rates will range from $2.52 to $15.09, depending on the size of the vehicle and whether the driver has a prepaid account.
RiverLink accounts allow drivers to safely and efficiently cross the Ohio River while paying the lowest toll rates. Drivers with transponders and prepaid accounts in good standing save more than $2 per crossing. In a passenger vehicle, the savings is 50% per crossing. The easiest way to maintain a positive account balance is by choosing auto-replenishment and linking the account to a valid payment method.
Toll revenue is used to meet the financial obligations of the Ohio River Bridges Project and to pay for operations and maintenance of the bridges and roadways in the project area.
Tolling is in place on the I-65 Abraham Lincoln Bridge, I-65 Kennedy Bridge and SR 265/KY 841 Lewis and Clark Bridge connecting Prospect, Ky. and Utica, Ind.
Toll rates increase annually by 2.5 percent unless the rate of inflation (as measured by the Consumer Price Index) is higher. The April 2023 CPI used to calculate this year’s increase was 4.9 percent.
Indiana Walk-Up Center Expected to Reopen Late Summer
As a reminder, the Indiana Walk-Up Center closed in late May to complete renovations and prepare for the transition to a new toll service provider. Several improvements in the customer experience are expected with the new provider. The walk-up center in Jeffersonville is anticipated to reopen in late summer.
The Kentucky Walk-Up Center remains open to serve customers. It’s currently located at 400 E. Main Street, Suite 102. The walk-up center in Louisville will be moving to a new downtown location when the new provider is in place.
