USA, Louisiana, New Orleans
 

Location Information:

The Crescent City Connection, abbreviated as CCC, (formerly the Greater New Orleans Bridge) refers to twin cantilever bridges that carry U.S. Route 90 Business over the Mississippi River in New Orleans, Louisiana. They are tied as the fifth-longest cantilever bridges in the world. Each span carries four general-use automobile lanes; additionally the westbound span has two reversible HOV lanes across the river. The westbound span, which carries motorists into the city's Central Business District on the Eastbank, requires a toll of $1 ($0.40 with an electronic toll tag).

It is the farthest downstream bridge on the Mississippi River. It is also the widest and most heavily-traveled bridge on the lower Mississippi; the only other comparable bridges on the Mississippi are in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area (the I-35W Saint Anthony Falls Bridge, the Dartmouth Bridge, and once fully expanded, the Wakota Bridge). The tolls collected on the Crescent City Connection are defined in Louisiana state law R.S. 47:820.5(B). This law states that from October 1, 1994 through December 31, , tolls will be collected at a rate of $0.20 per axle for toll tag users, and $0.50 per axle for cash users. Prior to Hurricane Katrina, annual toll collections averaged $20 million
