Kentucky-Indiana group adopts initial toll rates for Ohio River Bridge Projects

Initial base toll rates have been set for the new Ohio River Bridges Project, which is under construction and scheduled for completion in 2016.

The Kentucky-Indiana Tolling Body Wednesday approved rates previously recommended by Kentucky and Indiana transportation officials. The two states will use all-electronic tolling, in which there are no toll plazas, no coin buckets and no slowing of traffic. Vehicles passing through tolling gantries will be monitored in two ways: onboard electronic transponders that send signals to monitors and video cameras that record license plates from overhead gantries, according to a news release.
