No tolls means bridge workers will lose their jobs

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announced 31 people employed with the Crescent City Connection bridge will lose their jobs.

The announcement comes one day after a judge vacated November’s toll renewal election results and ordered a stop to toll collections.

According to the DOTD, the workers were hired as temporary employees pending the outcome of the election.

The workers’ last day will be Friday.  The DOTD says more personnel adjustments may be needed depending upon the budget and workload.

The judge who vacated the November election ordered another one for May 4th.
