LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Initial toll rates for the Ohio River Bridges project have been set, with frequent commuter cars with transponders paying $1 while tractor trailers with the device paying $10 per crossing.
The Kentucky-Indiana Tolling Body on Wednesday approved rates recommended by transportation officials.
The states will use all-electronic tolling. Vehicles passing through tolling gantries will be monitored by onboard electronic transponders that send signals to monitors and video cameras that record license plates from overhead gantries.
Motorists who register their license plates and establish pre-paid accounts will pay $3 for cars, $6 for medium trucks and $11 for heavy trucks. For motorists who don't register and choose to be invoiced rather than establish pre-paid accounts, the rates will be $4 for cars, $7 for medium trucks and $12 for heavy trucks.
