NEW ORLEANS - State transportation officials say toll collection is being suspended on two major bridges in south Louisiana.

The suspension affects the Louisiana Highway 1 bridge, an evacuation route for the Grand Isle and Port Fourchon areas along the coast, and the Crescent City Connection, which links the New Orleans business district with communities on the west bank of the Mississippi River.

Residents of low-lying areas along the Louisiana coast were being asked to evacuate ahead of Tropical Storm Isaac.
