The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) will make LA 1 Toll presentation to both the Grand Isle and Lafourche Councils on April 24.
The Lafourche Council meeting starts at 5 pm and will be held at the old Mathews Wal-Mart at 4876 Highway 1, Mathews.
The Grand Isle Council meeting starts at 6 pm and will be held at the Grand Isle Community Center 3811 Hwy 1, Grand Isle,
These presentations will cover changes to the tolling system including the addition of a new cash/charge lane. The new toll payment machines will:
· Offer a multi-mode payment solution accepting coins, cash (exact change not necessary), credit cards, and debit card to provide non-GeauxPass customers a convenient “in-lane” method to pay their LA 1 toll.
· Be accessed from the right lane of LA 1, and will offer two heights via a stacked or dual payment input front to accommodate travelers in any kind of vehicle, from a subcompact car to a semi-truck.
