December 27, 2012 – Despite complaints about incorrect charges and toll confusion, state officials say the first year of 520 Bridge tolling went even better than expected. Now those officials are eyeing bigger moves, such as adding tolling to Interstate 90. On Thursday, the Department of Transportation laid out what’s been fixed, and when tolls will go beyond the bridge. The state says it collected $50 million during the first year of tolling. Ultimately, tolls on the 520 are expected to bring in $1 billion of the $4.1 billion cost of the new bridge. Over the next year, the state will examine tolls on I-90 for the Legislature’s consideration in 2014. The earliest I-90 tolling could begin is in 2015.
