Any word on if/when the exction between I-65 and I-71 will be signed as I-265?
https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?topic=27242.0

It was postulated in the Beltway Mileage Clockwise vs Counterclockwise thread, that KYTC will probably add I-265 signage for the North/West Direction at the I-71/I-265 Interchange as that interchange is scheduled to be reconstructed

I hope they not only add I-265 signage, but KYTC finally gives the Synder proper Control Cities. Now that it crosses the Ohio, it functions both as a true beltway and a suburban connector. Without the Ohio River Bridge, without Controls was fine, as it was basically a suburban connector freeway

Anyway, why is I-265 past the interchange with I-65 still signed as SR 265? Also, by exit 11 on I/SR-265, in Utica, there's supposed to be an "interchange" where River Ridge Pkwy splits with another road that hasn't been built yet.

It's up to INDOT and KYDOT to change the signage between I-65 and I-71, no idea why they haven't done yet.

As for the River Ridge interchange, that entire area north of 265 is an old munitions depot that is being redeveloped. The parts along IN 62 got developed first and that section where that interchange is will be future development.

If anyone is so inclined, they can email KYTC.District5info@ky.gov to ask when the I-265 signage will be installed.

The new C/D ramps at I-265 and I-71 opened late last night! The I-Move project is moving ahead at a crazy speed. I hope this style design/build project happens for future projects.

Edit: I hope the signs are permanent. Northbound is still identified as KY 841 and not I-265. Hopefully as the project progresses, the signs will be corrected.

I would assume that the renumber just isn't a high priority item for either INDOT or KYTC. New signs cost money and the I-designation means less with how people tend to navigate by GPS nowadays. The renumber became official in 2019, so it's not like they're just waiting on AASHTO approval to change out signs.

Edit: I hope the signs are permanent. Northbound is still identified as KY 841 and not I-265. Hopefully as the project progresses, the signs will be corrected.

This is the item that raises question marks. The 71/265 rebuild would be the logical time to renumber on the KY side because they're already changing out the signs.

If anyone is truly concerned, they can email kytc.district5info@ky.gov to pose the question, and post the answer here.

How long does it take for Riverlink to send you a bill for crossing the bridge?

I finally crossed it Westbound on a foggy day the weekend before Thanksgiving and still have not gotten a bill...

It took me a few months before I received my first invoice, also I think they wait for you to cross twice before sending a bill in the mail (the wisdom being that if you cross once you'll eventually cross back and they want to save money on the snail mail).

I am not sure if you have to wait for them to send the bill, but I saw that they have a Pay By Plate option (I am not sure if it will work or not. I just saw it on their site).
