Toll bridge

Hi, I am wondering if there is a toll payable on the bridge from the mainland to Ile d'Oleron. Thinking of going there on our holidays but a toll fee would change our minds

Regards,

Google is your friend - this is what Wikipedia says:

Since 1966, the island has been connected to the mainland by a road bridge. With a length of 2,862 m (9,390 ft) between abutments, it was the longest bridge in France at the time of construction. It is now the third one, after the Saint-Nazaire bridge and the Ile de Ré bridge. It has been toll-free since 1991.
