LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) -- New toll rates for three bridges connecting Louisville and Southern Indiana will start in July. The 2.5 percent increase is effective July 1, 2019.

The new rate for a passenger vehicle with a prepaid account and transponder is $2.10 per crossing. Currently, the toll rate is $2.05.

RiverLink said the easiest way to maintain a positive account balance with them is by choosing auto-replenishment and linking the account to a valid payment method.

The I-65 Abraham Lincoln Bridge, I-65 Kennedy Bridge, and SR 265/KY 841 Lewis and Clark Bridge connecting Prospect, Ky. and Utica, Ind. have tolls.

Toll rates increase every year by 2.5 percent unless the rate of inflation (as measured by the Consumer Price Index) is higher. Tolling started on December 30, 2016.
