Ohio River Bridges Traffic Averages 81,000 Vehicles a Day

Associated Press reports, “Officials say traffic crossing three tolled bridges connecting Kentucky and Indiana in the Louisville area averaged more than 81,000 vehicles during three recent days. RiverLink officials say just over 50 percent of those vehicles had transponders that were mounted and read by bridge cameras. Tolling started Dec. 30 on the new Lewis and Clark Bridge, the new Interstate 65 Abraham Lincoln Bridge and the improved I-65 Kennedy Bridge.”

Courier-Journal reports that the demand for transponders (especially RiverLink’s free tags) has almost depleted the available stock, and new supplies are expected to arrive soon.
