Toll rates will increase for the Tacoma Narrows Bridge and the state Route 99 tunnel beginning Friday. Drivers with Good To Go! passes will continue to pay the lowest toll rate on all roads.

All tolls will increase by 25-cents. That means trips with a Good To Go! pass will increase to $5.25. At the toll booth, drivers will pay $6.25, and Pay By Mail customers will be charged $7.25 for each trip.

This rate increase is part of a plan approved in 2018 by the state Legislature, to bring stability to toll rates on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge and help repay construction debt.

Tolls will increase by 15 percent for all hours of the day. The current weekday peak Good To Go! rate of $2.25 will increase to $2.60, and the weekday Pay By Mail rate of $4.25 will rise to $4.60. 

On SR 99, toll rate increases are needed due to revenue impacts related to the pandemic. 

The increases were approved Aug. 24 by the Washington State Transportation Commission, which is required by law to set toll rates to ensure enough revenue is generated to cover debt payments, operations and maintenance.

During the Aug. 24 meeting, the WSTC also approved a 15 percent rate increase for the state Route 520 bridge, which goes into effect July 1, 2023.
