LA 1 Expressway Toll Lane Closures Scheduled

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) has announced that work to restore the LA 1 tolling system at the elevated LA 1 Expressway entrance ramp in Leeville begins this week. This work may cause delays to those with interests in Port Fourchon, so please plan accordingly.


GeauxPass Lane 1 (On the right leading into the toll gantry)

Wednesday, August 10 from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
GeauxPass Lane 2 (On the left)

Wednesday, August 10 from 1:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.
Thursday, August 11 from noon until 10:00 p.m.
Friday, August 12 from 7:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m.

The right lane, which was previously used for cash and credit options at the toll booth, will be open for thru traffic.

Beginning in late summer/early fall, tolling operations at LA 1 in Leeville will resume with a new cashless system, following repairs made from damage caused by Hurricane Ida in August 2021. To learn more about the changes, click here.


The maximum width on Lane 1 is 8’-7”. All motorists with loads exceeding 8’-7” in width will need a permit and contraflow escort. Please note that contraflow escorts are only allowed after sunrise and before sunset. For information on truck permits, email or call (800) 654-1433.

DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
