Will be used on Louisville – Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges Project
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Jan. 27, 2016) — A series of open houses have been scheduled to instruct drivers how Riverlink electronic tolling works, a method that will be used on the Louisville – Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges Project.
The open house events— planned for most Tuesdays and Thursdays in February and March, beginning Feb. 4.—will give drivers a chance to learn more about RiverLink and ask questions. Displays will include information on how all-electronic tolling works, what transponders are available and what payment options exist and initial toll rates.
Tolling is expected to begin late this year, when capacity is added to the system. That means either the improved John F. Kennedy Memorial Bridge or the new East End bridge will be complete and open to traffic.
The new Abraham Lincoln Bridge, the improved Kennedy Bridge and the new East End bridge will be tolled. Initial toll rates range from $1 to $12, depending on the size of the vehicle, whether a transponder is used and how often a driver crosses a tolled bridge.
The Transit Authority of River City (TARC) and the Kentuckiana Regional Planning & Development Agency (KIPDA) will also be available to discuss cross-river routes and the Ticket to Ride rideshare program.
All open houses are scheduled for 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., with the exception of the open house on Feb. 23 at Portland Community Center, scheduled from 6-7:30 p.m.
All open house events are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For directions or further information, call 502-891-2529 or email [email protected].
