ST. TAMMANY PARISH, LA (WVUE) - The St. Tammany Parish Council on Thursday approved issuing $133 million in bonds, clearing the way for raising tolls on Causeway.
The $2 round-trip cost for a toll-tag customer will rise to $3. Cash customers will see their $3 toll rise to $5.
Causeway General Manager Carlton Dufrechou said the money will go toward safety improvements, including higher railings on the southbound side to prevent cars from going into the lake.
