Research group: Let CCC tolls expire

A non-partisan research in New Orleans says tolls on the Crescent City Connection bridge that spans the Mississippi River should be allowed to expire.

The Bureau of Governmental Research, in a report released Tuesday, said the Crescent City Connection is the only Mississippi River bridge in Louisiana that tolls its users. The organization adds that only a small portion of toll revenue goes to the operation and maintenance of the bridge, and that the cost of collecting the tolls is disproportionate to the revenue generated.
