Toll collection to resume May 18

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announced May 13 that toll collection will resume on Monday, May 18, for the Cameron, Duty, and Plaquemine ferries.

Tolls were suspended on Apr. 30 due to COVID-19. DOTD strongly encourages motorists to present tolls using exact change to aid in reducing risks of potential exposures.

As a reminder, DOTD is asking all motorists who are using the ferries to remain in their vehicles as a precaution to limit the amount of interaction between riders.
