Today, Wednesday June 14th 2021, is the last day to submit public comment for or against proposed toll hikes on the New Tacoma Narrows Bridge, the Highway 520 floating bridge and the downtown Seattle tunnel for Highway 99.

KOMO News filed this story a week ago providing background information about the proposed toll hikes, which the WSDOT says are necessary to pay off construction bonds because fewer people were driving during the pandemic restrictions and lockdowns imposed by Gov. Jay Inslee. If approved by the Washington Transportation Commission, the toll hikes would take effect Oct. 1st this year.
