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.

See How It Works
Sensors and video cameras are placed on the tolled bridges. Drivers have the choice of using a transponder or having the system capture a photo of their license plate. Those who use a transponder and have a positive account balance receive the lowest rates. Learn more about how it works.
Tolling Options and Rates
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.
2. Registered Plate Capture
Those choosing not to use a transponder may 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.
