Narrows Tolls Meeting Thursday in Gig Harbor

The Tacoma Narrows Bridge Citizen Advisory Committee will meet from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday to review proposed toll rates. An open house will be held before the meeting, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., to give the public a chance to review toll financial and operations information. The event will be at the Inn at Gig Harbor, 3211 56th St. NW.
The citizens committee, as required by law, will review the toll rate proposed earlier this month by the state Transportation Commission.
In December, the citizens committee recommended maintaining the current toll rates of $2.75 for Good To Go! electronic tolls and $4 for manual tolls through June 30, 2010.
Based on traffic and revenue projections since then, the Transportation Commission proposed raising the Good To Go! electronic toll rate to $3.25, leaving the $4 manual toll rate the same.
Individuals will have a chance to comment. They can also submit comments or questions online to the Citizen Advisory Committee or by mail to TNB-CAC, 3214 50th St. Court NW, Building D-302, Gig Harbor, 98335-8583.
