GIG HARBOR – The Tacoma Narrows Bridge Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) will meet on Wednesday, Nov. 10, to continue its review of photo-tolling options on the bridge.
The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) proposes adding this new tolling option in the spring of 2011. The system would use cameras to automatically record license plates on vehicles without a transponder and bill registered owners for the toll.
The CAC is reviewing proposed rates, fees and payment methods for photo tolling. The new option would not affect the toll rate for those with a Good To Go! transponder nor the cash-toll rate paid at a toll booth.
The CAC will reconvene on Wednesday, Nov. 10, to consider making a recommendation on photo-toll rates and fees to the Washington State Transportation Commission.
