Tacoma Narrows Bridge Advisory Committee Recommends Holding the Line on Toll Rates

The News Tribune reports, “The Tacoma Narrows Bridge citizen advisory committee has an early holiday gift for bridge users: No toll increases in 2017. If the state Transportation Commission . . . accepts the committee’s recommendation, it would mark the second year in a row bridge tolls haven’t risen. The last time tolls went up was by 50 cents on July 1, 2015. A second 50-cent increase was planned for this past summer, but that was suspended after the Legislature allocated $2.5 million in gas tax revenues to help cover the bridge’s debt service.”
