NO TOLL INCREASE
ON THE TACOMA NARROWS BRIDGE
March 17, 2010 - Olympia, WA
The State Transportation Commission convened
this afternoon to set toll rates on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge to take
effect on July 1, 2010. Based on a review of the financial analysis and
adamant input from the users of the facility, the Commission announced
that there would be no increase in the current toll rates on the Tacoma
Narrows Bridge which will set the rates again at $2.75 for a transponder
transaction and $4.00 if you pay manually at the toll booths.
I want to thank those of you that appeared at the public meeting in Gig
Harbor last month as well as those who have put pressure on the
Commission through e-mails, letters and phone calls. They got the
message and heard us loud and clear. CONGRATULATIONS!
