The Washington Transportation Commission will meet at 1 p.m. Wednesday to hold a work session on whether to raise tolls on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge sooner than what a citizen advisory committee has recommended.

The advisory committee wants to hold steady at $4 for cash and $2.75 for electronic tolls for one more year — until July 1, 2010.

Department of Transportation staff wanted to go higher. So, this is where we find out whether the citizen committee is just so much window dressing and DOT staff gets to do what they want anyway, or if the committee actually has some clout and is listened to.
