Electronic toll lanes on SR 16 to be closed two nights this week

Crews will close all of the electronic toll lanes across the Narrows Bridge for two nights this week so upgraded readers can be installed.

The lanes will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday, from 8 p.m. each night to 4 a.m. the next morning. All vehicles will be detoured through the toll booths during the closures, the state DOT reports.

The upgrade will allow the readers to read the new and old Good to Go passes, DOT reports.

The on-ramp from 24th Street Northwest to eastbound state Route 16 in Gig Harbor will stay open during the closures.

    There is something strange about this process. Because of a new windshield I bought a new transponder near the end of Aug. A crossing on 9/1 was not posted to my account until ten days later and then as a camera toll. Why in blazes were these things being sold when they knew they would not work and does the delay in posting affect the revenue stream? If so, someone should start terminating the individuals responsible.
