Tolls resume on La. 1

Sep 11, 2012

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development resumed toll operations on the La. 1 Expressway in Leeville this morning at 10 a.m.

DOTD is conducting manual toll collections, and automated tolls will be collected by Geaux Pass toll tags. The in-lane cash and charge machine was severely damaged when a large truck struck it last month, but DOTD expects to have a replacement installed sometime this fall.

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 Leeville/Port Fourchon area.
