The Crescent City Connection, abbreviated as CCC, (formerly the Greater New Orleans Bridge) refers to twin cantilever bridges that carry U.S. Route 90 Business over the Mississippi River in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States. They are tied as the fifth-longest cantilever bridges in the World. Each span carries four general-use automobile lanes; additionally the westbound span has two reversible HOV lanes across the river. The westbound span, which carries motorists into the city's Central Business District on the Eastbank, requires a toll of $1 ($0.40 with an electronic toll tag).
It is the farthest downstream bridge on the Mississippi River. It is also the widest and most heavily-traveled bridge on the lower Mississippi; the only other comparable bridges on the Mississippi are in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area (the I-35W Saint Anthony Falls Bridge, the Dartmouth Bridge, and once fully expanded, the Wakota Bridge).
What later became known as the Crescent City Connection was the second bridge to span the Mississippi south of Baton Rouge after the Huey P. Long Bridge a few miles up river from the city, and the first bridge across the river in New Orleans itself.
