The state Transportation Commission agreed last week to suspend a planned across-the-board 50-cent toll increase for Tacoma Narrows Bridge drivers this summer. An uptick in traffic combined with a $2.5 million gas tax allocation from the state Legislature will help cover the 2017 debt repayment. This is the first time in four years there has not been a toll increase on the eastbound span of the bridge, which opened in 2007.
