Put your dollars down, drivers. The Crescent City Connection is toll free until further notice.
Officials suspended the tolls following a Baton Rouge judge's decision to nullify the November election results that renewed to the tolls for 20 year. Voters will take it up again on May 4.
Some drivers say if the money is put to good use, they're okay with paying the tolls, but they're not heartbroken that they don't have to, either.
"I don't mind paying a dollar, really, but you know, I wouldn't mind not paying a dollar, either," one man told WWL First News this morning.
Other drivers say they're glad the tolls are gone for now, and hope voters defeat the toll extension in the next go-'round.
"I think it's time for it to go," said one driver who told us he thinks all the toll does is take money from people.
"The tolls should go," another commuter agreed, "'cause the didn't do what they were supposed to do with it in the beginning."
At the toll plaza Wednesday morning, most drivers cruised through the lanes, slowing down to a prudent speed but not stopping. A few who didn't get the news -- despite electronic signs at the approaches and posters at all toll booths that inform drivers of the situation -- would come to a complete stop attempting to pay a toll-taker who wasn't there, and causing drivers stacked up behind them to lean on their horns.
