July 15, 2011 - Recently released revenue data provided by the DOTD shows that Jefferson Parish citizens pay the majority of the toll revenue on the CCC bridge.
The data provided by the DOTD, which listed detailed toll tag revenue broken down by toll tag account holder zip code from 2008 through the first 6 months of 2011, was then mapped by StopTheTolls.Org into parish totals using the zip code provided.
The resulting totals show that almost 1/2 (46%) of the toll revenue is paid by Jefferson Parish citizens. Less than 1/3 of toll revenue comes from Orleans Parish residents. Lafourche Parish residents pay about 1/12 of toll revenues.
Note: Cash toll payments and toll violation revenue are not included in these figures. It is assumed that cash toll payments follow approximately the same percentages by parish as do the toll tag toll payments.
