New Orleans, LA – The Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announces that its Crescent City Connection Division (CCCD) is set to resume toll operations at the Crescent City Connection Bridge. Tolls will go into effect at 10 a.m., Saturday, September 8.
The tolls had been suspended by DOTD to facilitate evacuation, emergency and protective services once it was determined that Hurricane Isaac would pose a significant threat to the Greater New Orleans area.
Tolls at the La. 1 Expressway are still suspended. DOTD will notify the traveling public when tolling services resume there.
