  • We anticipate that the bonds for the Tacoma Narrows Bridge will be paid off and all other obligations will be satisfied by July 1, 2032. At that time, the tolls are to be removed. The bridge was financed with an escalating debt structure to minimize the initial toll rates. Debt payments started out low when the bridge opened to traffic in 2007 and have risen, requiring additional toll revenue to pay the debt obligations consistent with the finance plan.

A Good To Go! pass is the cheapest and most convenient way to pay for tolls when you travel on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge

Drivers can pay using a Good To Go! account, by stopping at the toll booths or Pay By Mail where a toll bill is sent in the mail to the vehicle's registered owner for $2 more per trip.


Ways to pay the tolls

Account Options:

If you do not wish to set up an account, choose:

  • Pay By Mail ; $2 more per trip over the Good To Go! pass rate

Tolling Background

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. Construction was funded with bond financing to be repaid using tolls over 30+ years.
