Tollpayers and others have two chances to comment on a proposal by the Washington State Transportation Commission to increase tolls on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge by 25 cents during each of the next two summers.
Comments will be taken at two commission meetings scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on April 15 and May 20. Both meetings will take place at the Gig Harbor Civic Center, 3510 Grandview Street. The commission is scheduled to take action on tolls at the May 20 meeting.
Those unable to attend the meeting can send comments via email or “snail mail.” Written comments should be addressed to: Washington State Transportation Commission, P.O. Box 47308, Olympia, WA. 98504-7308. You can send emailed comments by clicking here.

Good to Go!, cash and pay-by-mail tolls, respectively, would increase to $4.25, $5.25 and $6.25, under the current proposal. They would increase to $4.50, $5.50 and $6.50, again respectively, on July 1, 2014.
