The DOTD has announced plans to begin demolition on the Crescent City Connection toll plaza.

The process to remove booths in lanes 1-6 began Wednesday night around 10pm.

A number of drivers have gone on recording saying this phase of decommissioning the CCC toll plaza is long overdue.

It’s been just more than a month since voters overwhelmingly rejected a 20-year toll extension, in the May 4th ‘do-over’ vot

Since then, toll tag users have been pleased to apply for refunds.

Many say they’re looking forward to the demolition of the toll plaza.

During the process several lanes leading to the plaza will have to be closed.

No word from the DOTD how long it will take before all twelve booths will be removed.
