The average Westbank commuter will be forced to pay an extra $5000 if the CCC tolls are renewed ($2000 per toll tag). This is after the Westbank has paid tolls for over 22 years, and while other citizens across the State do not have to pay tolls to cross the Mississippi River nor to subsidize local ferry operations.
Source: Calculation by StopTheTolls.Org:
Assuming 22 work days per month x 12 months/year x 20 years = $5280 will be paid if cash tolls ($2112 per toll tag)
Note: If you cross more than once per day, or make any bridge crossing on any weekend days, then you will pay even more than what is show here. Also these calculations assume $1.00 for cash toll and $.40 for a toll tag - if the tolls are increased then the amount you will have to pay will increase.
