Citizen advisory board to begin toll discussion

Gateway news servicesJanuary 8, 2014 

The Tacoma Narrows Bridge Citizen Advisory Committee will meet this week to discuss a planned 25-cent toll increase.

Last May, the state Transportation Commission adopted an additional 25-cent increase for the Tacoma Narrows Bridge that is planned to take effect on July 1. The 2014 toll rate is contingent on review of updated traffic and revenue data by the Citizen Advisory Committee, which will submit its recommendation to the Transportation Commission in March.

Workshops will be held at the Gig Harbor Civic Center, 3510 Grandview St., on the following dates:

 • 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 8.

 • 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 29.

 • If needed, a third meeting will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 19.

All Citizen Advisory Committee meetings are open to the public. If citizens wish to provide comments, they can do so at the committee meetings, or they can submit written comments or questions to the committee online or by mail at: Tacoma Narrows Bridge CAC, WSDOT Toll Division, 401 2nd Ave. S., Suite 300, Seattle, WA 98104.

The Citizen Advisory Committee is a governor-appointed, nine-member committee required by law to make toll-rate recommendations to the Transportation Commission.
