RiverLink Tolling Rates Approved

Posted: Updated:

Officials from Indiana and Kentucky have approved several measures regarding RiverLink, the all-electronic tolling system that will be utilized as part of the Ohio River Bridges Project. The measures include the fee structure and vehicle classification for those crossing the Ohio River.

Officials say the Ohio River Bridges Project is being made possible by RiverLink. The tolling system is scheduled to begin when either the John F. Kennedy Bridge or the East End bridge is complete and fully open to traffic. 

The tolling system does not utilize toll plazas or coin machines and boasts no lines or stopping. Drivers can pay the tolls for the bridges using a transponder and prepaid account, or pay unpaid tolls online. There will also be customer service centers on both sides of the river that can accept payment.

Both bridges are expected to be completely open to traffic by the end of this year. The customer service centers are expected to be open by late summer.

    • Hope is Not a Plan

      This is sobering. A local business broker in Indianapolis reports nine out of 10 business owners who want to sell are turned away. Of the one in 10 that does make it past the first analysis to sell, over half of those company owners don’t get the sale price they hope for or believe the business is worth. Bottom line, hope is not a plan if you want to sell your business.
