Tolls On Track for SR 520 Bridge

From WSDOT:

One year in to tolling on the SR 520 Floating Bridge tolls and traffic are what were expected. About 50 million in revenue has been generated and traffic is at 70% of original levels. There is also strong ridership in buses and vanpools across the bridge.

All this is good news. The bridge needs to be replaced and tolling is the best funding source. It appears the naysayers predictions of less traffic and revenue are not coming to pass.
