FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A consulting firm told Kentucky's Transportation Cabinet that tolls beginning at $1 are on target to help pay for the $2.6 billion Ohio River Bridges Project.

The cabinet said in a news release Tuesday that the firm of Steer Davies Gleave discussed the tolls as part of a traffic and revenue study it is doing for the state.

The study is not complete and rates have not been adopted. The toll rates will be set by the Kentucky-Indiana Joint Tolling Board.

Kentucky is responsible for the part of the project known as the Downtown Crossing, which includes a new bridge for northbound lanes of Interstate 65 between Louisville and Jeffersonville, Ind., and reconfiguration of the John F. Kennedy Memorial Bridge to carry southbound I-65.
