NEW ORLEANS -- They raised the money to light the Crescent City Connection 25 years ago, and now they are trying to stop the bridge from going dark.

The Young Leadership Council says the lights should stay, even if the tolls don't.

If the tolls are allowed to expire at the end of the year, the bridge will be dark without a funding source.

The YLC raised the money for the lights in 1987 before the tolls were enacted.

The group says that shows the lights can be funded even without toll revenue.
