SR 16 Tacoma Narrows Bridge Toll Rates and Policies

TNB Rate Setting

State law requires the Transportation Commission to set toll rates on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge (TNB) sufficient to meet maintenance and operational costs, insurance costs, and principal and interest payments on the debt.

In order to meet the requirements in state law, TNB toll rates and policies are reviewed for possible adjustment on an annual basis. More information about TNB tolling, including how to pay tolls and the TNB Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) is available on the Washington State Department of Transportation’s TNB tolling webpage.

To support its rate setting, the Transportation Commission has a TNB Toll Setting Policy 2018 (pdf 107 kb) which guides the Commission’s decisions about future toll rates.
