Toll increase for SR 520 Bridge

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

With a unanimous vote today, May 22, 2013, at their meeting in Olympia, the Washington State Transportation Commission adopted a 2.5 percent toll-rate increase for the State Route 520 bridge during their meeting in Port Townsend. The commission gathered and considered written public comments over the past two months, prior to taking action. The new rates will take effect on July 1.

The new peak Good To Go! rates will be $3.70, and the peak Pay By Mail rates will be $5.25. The increase affects all toll rates, but drivers using a Good To Go! pass will continue to pay the lowest rate. The complete toll-rate schedule for the SR 520 bridge will be posted online before the end of the month.

Local concerns are that traffic will increase on Bothell Way, as drivers go north around the lake to avoid the tolls.
