Kapsch TrafficCom has celebrated the reopening of the LA1 tolling facility in Leeville, Lousiana, following a total refit, which saw Kapsch deploy its end-to-end Roadside Toll Collection solution, including its Commercial Back Office system and enhanced customer service operations.
Originally established in 2009, LA1 is a strategic and critical transportation artery not only for the State of Louisiana, but also for the country, supporting the oil, petroleum, and chemical industries of southern Louisiana. Additionally, while supporting the industrial sector, LA1 is also a key and vital route for those enthusiasts that enjoy what could be described as the best sport fishing areas in the region.
“As a key partner, this project was completed under a partnership with Plenary Americas,” explained Dan Toohey, SVP of sales and services for Kapsch. “We are pleased to support this and other public-private partnerships to support the building and re-building of critical infrastructure projects in Louisiana, and look forward to the opportunities ahead.”
Kapsch assumed the management and operation of the system responsibility on November 9 with the new all-electronic tolling gantry going live. On November 20, Kapsch TrafficCom reopened the Customer Service Center at Golden Meadow, LA and commenced the full end-to-end operations of the GeauxPass Roadside Program.
