A new routing option has opened for truckers in the Midwest with the State Road 265 bridge across the Ohio River, known formerly as the East End bridge and now renamed the Lewis and Clark Bridge.

The Lewis and Clark Bridge will provide options for truckers looking to link up multiple routes through Kentucky and Southern Indiana.

The bridge connects Utica, Indiana, and Prospect, Kentucky, and was the final major piece of the $2.3 billion Louisville-Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges Project to open to traffic. The project also included the North Abraham Lincoln Bridge and the South Kennedy Bridge in downtown Louisville, Kentucky.

The three new routes will reportedly double the cross-river capacity downtown. All three bridges will be tolled, and tolling is scheduled to begin on Dec. 30. All vehicles on the bridge must have a transponder to pay the lowest rates; customers with E-ZPass, PrePass, and BestPass toll accounts that include E-ZPass, may use their existing transponders.

The tolling is provided through RiverLink and is all-electronic, with no stopping, slowing, lines or coin machines. RiverLink will offer local transponders for use on the three bridges.
