Narrows Bridge: Facts on toll setting

  • Dec 6, 2008 at 12:00AM

Reading the Nov. 1 editorial (“Tacoma Narrows Bridge: a toll payer money pit”), it is apparent there is a need for better information about how the state of Washington is obligated to pay for the Tacoma Narrows Bridge (TNB). It cost $737 million to build the bridge. It cost another $400 million to reconfigure and improve the approaches and make necessary SR 16 corridor improvements on both sides of the bridge to ensure efficient traffic flows between Gig Harbor and I-5. It should be noted the $400 million investment is not being paid for with toll revenue but rather, is funded with gas taxes collected statewide. The state Legislature determined only the bridge would be paid for through tolls.

'Free Choice Act' is really the 'No Choice Act'

  • Nov 27, 2008 at 9:00PM
