The all-electronic tolling system that will be in place as part of the Ohio River Bridges Project is open for business. While tolling itself won't begin until later this year, two RiverLink customer service centers are open and drivers can set up RiverLink accounts.

Officials from Indiana and Kentucky approved the tolling rates and vehicle classification for the bridges in May. RiverLink says the initial toll rates range from $2 to $12 with the lowest rates reserved for drivers with transponders, which can be obtained by setting up a prepaid account.

"We still have several months before the start of tolling," said Clint Murphy, director of tolling oversight with the Indiana Department of Transportation. "Setting up a prepaid account is an important first step we know many drivers are ready to take. We want to make the process as easy as possible, and make sure drivers have the information they need to pay the lowest rates."

Tolling will begin when either the John F. Kennedy Bridge or the East End Bridge is complete and open to traffic. Both bridges are expected to be complete by the end of the year.

    • 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.
