Crescent City Toll Debate

CCC2Toll collection on the Crescent City Connection is set to expire next December.

The fast approaching date has both supporters of the toll program and opponents sounding off.

An informational meeting for supporters was held Tuesday night in Algiers Point.

Dozens of people packed the Carriage House to talk about the benefits of tolls.

The say tolls help pay for bridge police, maintenance, and lights.

But opponents say the toll program unfairly taxes people who live on the West Bank.

The Friends of the Ferry Task Force will have until February to convince law makers to extend the toll program.

A proposed bill could come in the spring.
