Three Bridges Newly Tolled in Louisville, KY Area


Truckers and motorists who cross the Ohio River in the Louisville, Ky., area will be confronted with tolls on three bridges beginning Dec. 30.

The tolls on two Interstate-65 bridges and the Kennedy Bridge will range from 10 to $12 for 5-axle trucks depending on whether they have transponders.

Mindy Peterson, spokeswoman for the RiverLink Project, says two new bridges and improvements to an existing bridge means ending years of congestion.

Peterson notes that people who want to avoid a toll can use the Interstate-64 Sherman-Minton Bridge, which will remain toll-free.
