Tolls for commercial vehicle drivers on three bridges in the Kentucky/Indiana area goes up July 1.
The increase will be the largest since the introduction of bridge tolls in 2016. Bridge tolls typically increase by 2.5% each year, according to RiverLink, but this year the increase was much higher due to inflation.
Tolls on the I-65 Abraham Lincoln Bridge and I-65 Kennedy Bridge connecting Louisville to southern Indiana, as well as the Lewis and Clark SR 265/KY 841 bridge connecting Prospect, Kentucky, and Utica, Indiana, are expected to increase by 8.3%.
Officials say toll revenue is used to meet the financial obligations of the Ohio River Bridge Project and to pay for the operation and maintenance of bridges and roads in the project area.
