    Default New Toll on I-65 in Louisville

    I just noticed an article that starting on Dec. 30, 2016, The I-65 Bridge over the Ohio River in Louisville will become a toll bridge. The toll will be transponder/license plate based system - and it will be a part of the EZ-Pass system. Tolls will be $2 for cars with an EZ-Pass or $4 for those without (billed to the registered owner of the license plate).

    The same toll will be in place for the brand new I-265 Bridge that will complete the freeway loop around the Northeast side of Louisville, that bridge is scheduled to open in the coming days.

    The I-64 Bridge that crosses the Ohio River on the Northwest side of Louisville will remain toll free, but that does add 8-10 miles to the drive, compared to driving straight through on I-65. The Clark Memorial Bridge (US-31) that also crosses the river in Downtown Louisville will also remain toll free, and adds little distance compared to I-65, but does require getting off and back on the freeway.

    I recently crossed that toll bridge twice in a rental car while traveling from Alabama to Indiana and back. The charge was $7.95 one way, so the two crossings cost a total of $15.90! The rental car company says they billed me exactly what was charged by the tolling authority.

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Well, as I posted, the toll crossing itself is $4 each way, without a EZ-Pass transponder. I'd guess one of two things has happened - since you didn't pay the toll on time (often within 7 days) the cost doubled, otherwise the rental car company decided to add on a fee for having to pay the toll for you, and weren't being honest when they said that they only charged what the toll company charged.
