Upon completion LA 1 toll expressway will extend from Golden Meadow to the Gulf of Mexico. 2-axle vehicles pay $3 toll to use the bridge.

The northern terminus is at Mandeville, Louisiana. The tolls are collected on southbound span. Two-axle vehicles pay $5.00 toll with cash and $3.00 with a Toll Tag.

TollGuru Vehicle TypeLA-1 vehicle class
Truck 2-axles2 axle dually
Truck 3-axles3 axle trucks and buses dually with 1 axle trailer
Truck 4-axles4 axle (dually with 2 axles trailer)
Truck 5-axles5 axle (dually with 3 axles trailer)
Truck 6-axles6 axle (dually with 4 axles trailer)

Tolls on the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway[5] are calculated based on number of axles and height of the vehicle. Vehicles less than 7 feet are charged lower tolls for a same number of axles. Since trucks are higher than 7 feet, TollGuru toll calculator lists tolls by number of axles.
