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
Motorcyclists who have been waiting to open RiverLink accounts have a recommendation on which transponder to use.
It’s recommended that motorcyclists use a RiverLink E-ZPass transponder, and purchase a transponder holder that works best for their motorcycle and needs. Several options can be found through third-party vendors with an online search.
Thousands of people have opened RiverLink accounts during the first month of operations. More than 4,000 people have opened personal accounts, and more than 100 businesses have opened commercial accounts. RiverLink launched operations July 21, with tolling not expected to start until late this year.
RiverLink is the new, all-electronic tolling system making the Louisville – Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges Project possible. There are no toll booths, no coin machines, no lines and no stopping. Initial toll rates range from $2-$12. The lowest toll rates are for drivers with transponders. Drivers must set up a prepaid account to get a transponder.
Tolling won’t begin until late this year, but drivers may soon notice cameras in place on the toll gantry located at the north end of the Abraham Lincoln Bridge, near Court Avenue.
Two cameras are scheduled to be installed overnight, and should be in place by early morning on Friday, August 5. Testing the cameras is part of preparations for all-electronic tolling. Thousands of images are expected to be captured in the coming days.
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.
