INDIANAPOLIS -- If you travel over the Ohio River to get to Louisville, It's going to cost you a little more starting this weekend. 

RiverLink is raising the toll fees 2.5 percent starting July 1. It may not seem like a big jump, but with the number of cars that cross the bridge every day it will add up fast. 

New toll rates range from $2.05-$12.30, depending on the size of the vehicle.

Tolling is in place on the Interstate 65 bridges connecting Indiana to Kentucky, including the SR 265 Lewis and Clark Bridge, the I-65 Abraham Lincoln Bridge and the I-65 Kennedy Bridge.

INDOT uses RiverLink to handle the tolling process. RiverLink is an all-electronic tolling system, meaning there aren't lines of people stopping to pay tolls.

If you have a RiverLink account with money in it, and a transponder, the money will be automatically deducted from your account. If you don't, you'll get a bill in the mail with your toll.

INDOT warns that drivers who don't pay their tolls will be charged a penalty and may face restrictions on future vehicle registrations.

People with a RiverLink account and a transponder will also pay a lower toll cost.

The I-64 and the U.S. 31 bridges across the Ohio River is not tolled. 

The following are the toll rates for vehicles broken down by payment method:
