TOLLING BEGINS DEC. 30 ON I-65 AND EAST END BRIDGES

The I-64 (Sherman Minton) and the US 31/Second Street (Clark Memorial) bridges across the Ohio River will not be tolled in connection with the project.

Drivers traveling in Louisville and Southern Indiana need to prepare for the start of tolling on three Ohio River bridges. Tolling on the Louisville – Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges Project is scheduled to begin Friday, December 30.

Tolled bridges include the two I-65 bridges connecting Downtown Louisville and Southern Indiana, the new Abraham Lincoln Bridge and the improved John F. Kennedy Memorial Bridge. The new East End bridge connecting the Gene Snyder Freeway in Prospect, Ky. with State Road 265 in Utica, Ind. opens late December 18 and will also be tolled.

Riverlink LogoRiverLink is the name of the new, all-electronic tolling system that makes the project possible. There’s no stopping, no slowing, no lines and no coin machines. Toll rates range from $2-$12, depending on the size of vehicle and whether the driver has a RiverLink account and transponder.

Drivers with transponders will pay the lowest toll rates. Drivers can set up a prepaid RiverLink account to get a transponder. All E-ZPass transponders, including the I-PASS from Illinois and the Indiana Toll Road E-ZPass, will work with the RiverLink system. No further action is necessary.

Drivers without transponders will get bills in the mail, and pay higher toll rates. Drivers who do not pay their tolls will be charged a penalty and may face restrictions on vehicle registration until tolls and penalties are paid.

Indiana's "Text to 911" Program

Continuing efforts to improve public safety and modernize Indiana’s 911 services, Treasurer of the State Kelly Mitchell and the Statewide 911 Board are pleased to announce that Hoosiers in all 92 counties can now send a text message to 911.

“Indiana has the largest deployment of ‘Text to 911’ in the United States” said Treasurer Mitchell.

“Since 911 was created, Indiana has been a leader in this industry. Statewide ‘Text to 911’ capabilities are yet another example of our leadership and innovation in this arena.”

‘Text to 911’ services allow people who are deaf, hard of hearing, and speaking impaired to access participating emergency service call centers by sending a text message to 911 in lieu of making a voice call or needing a telephone relay service. “Text to 911” also allows residents in dangerous situations who are unable to risk the noise of a call to send a text for help.

If you would like more information about the ‘Text to 911’ program please contact Barry Ritter, Executive Director of the Statewide 911 Board at (317) 234-2507.

New Website to Find Child Care

The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) recently announced a new, online tool to assist families in finding child care and early education providers.

Child Care Finder in Indiana

ChildCareFinder.IN.gov is one of several online enhancements FSSA is making to help parents and families find services in their area.

The website allows families to search licensed providers by numerous parameters including location, type of provider, hours and licensing status, which will help families across the state meet their child-care needs.

Families can find inspection reports and any validated complaints or enforcement actions for each provider they search. Parents can also see if the provider participates in Paths to Quality, Indiana's voluntary quality rating and improvement system.

With this new tool, parents can be assured they are finding high-quality child care that meets their needs while helping ensure their child's safety.
