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), a 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.
Introduction: About RiverLink
Drivers have another option for purchasing RiverLink transponders. RiverLink starter kits are available at Thorntons locations in Louisville and Jeffersonville. The kit includes a RiverLink prepaid transponder that can be used on the three tolled bridges connecting Louisville and Southern Indiana, a reload card and a RiverLink customer agreement.
The second quarter of tolling on three bridges connecting Louisville and Southern Indiana saw an increase in the number of crossings on the bridges and significant improvements in RiverLink customer service. Tolling on the SR 265 Lewis and Clark Bridge, I-65 Abraham Lincoln Bridge and I-65 Kennedy Bridge started Dec. 30, 2016.
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.
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.
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.
For passenger vehicles with roof top luggage, accessories, and/or cargo, if the height exceeds 7 ½ feet, you will be charged as a medium vehicle, $5.00 if you have a transponder. Please click here for more information on RiverLink tolling rates. Vehicles may be re-classified to a higher rate due to the height of cargo or due to pulling a trailer. These crossing do not qualify for the Frequent User Discount.
