JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. -- Indiana and Kentucky officials have chosen a Virginia-based company to operate the tolling system for the new Ohio River bridges being built between Louisville, Ky., and southern Indiana.
The Kentucky-Indiana Joint Board this week unanimously chose McLean, Va.-based Kapsch TrafficCom USA to provide the electronic tolling transponders for new bridges downtown and at the east end of the metropolitan area and the existing Kennedy Bridge.

Indiana Department of Transportation spokesman Will Wingfield tells the News and Tribune the company's contract is worth an estimated $1.4 million.
Kapsch TrafficCom will provide two different types of transponders and the equipment that will detect their signals.
All-electronic tolling will be used on the two new bridges and the renovated Kennedy Bridge.
