Tolls are only collected for trips headed to Tacoma on the State Route 16 Tacoma Narrows Bridge. Tolls help repay the costs of construction to build the second span of the bridge which opened in 2007.
Note: Vehicles with more than two axles pay higher toll rates.
Ways to Pay
All vehicles must pay a toll except for emergency vehicles. Carpools, vanpools, motorcycles and transit pay tolls just like all other vehicles.
In 1998 voters approved construction of a second Tacoma Narrows Bridge between Tacoma and Gig Harbor to alleviate daily traffic backups and accommodate projected growth in population and employment. Construction began in 2002, and the new bridge opened in 2007.
Tolling will continue as long as the bonds which financed the new bridge are being paid off, which is planned to end in 2032. Learn more about tolling finance and policy.
