The Washington State Legislature passed legislation (SB 5488) in 2022 that provided funding and directed the Washington State Transportation Commission to adjust toll rates on the Tacoma Narrow Bridge (TNB). Based upon this direction and the funding amount provided, the Commission plans to reduce TNB toll rates by October 1, 2022.
What Is The Rate Reduction Proposal?
The Commission is proposing the following rate reduction:
- A Flat 75 cent toll rate reduction for 2-axle vehicles, with a per axle multiplier applied for vehicles with 3+ axles (per current practice)
