Crescent City Connection Toll Plaza to Become Less of a Nightmare Soon

The plan is to reduce the area to five lanes

The Crescent City Connection toll plaza may be defunct, but that area is still a mess, since drivers—pointlessly—still must go through the 12 empty toll booths, then quickly merge into one of the four lanes on the bridge.

But the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development is fixing it, and they have released plans on how the CCC may end up looking once the toll plaza is removed.

The plan is to install barriers so that the road isn't as wide, leaving room for just five lanes.

Construction is scheduled to be complete early next year.

Here's how the CCC toll plaza lanes could be redesigned []
