Tacoma Narrows Bridge Advisory Committee Chair Thanks Lawmakers and Makes Case for Stabilizing Tolls

The News Tribune publishes an op-ed by Bruce Beckett, chairman of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge Citizens Advisory Committee, who writes, “Thanks to the teamwork of 26th District state legislators, users of the Tacoma Narrows bridge will not pay higher tolls this year. Unfortunately, this relief lasts one, maybe two, years — and then the relentless increases could begin again.” The report dives into the three main factors that drive toll rates and argues for a change in reserve account requirements.
