LEEVILLE - The state Department of Transportation and Development has resumed collecting tolls on the LA 1 bridge in Leeville.

The tolls were suspended Sunday after a state of emergency was declared in advance of Tropical Storm Debby.

Debby's center was essentially stationary about 50 miles south of Apalachicola, Fla.

Debby's top sustained winds were around 45 mph with little change in strength expected over the next day or so.

The forecast map indicated the storm would crawl northeast, eventually coming ashore in Florida later this week.

The state resumed collecting tolls on the Louisiana 1 bridge at 1 p.m. Monday.
