Opening 17 miles of express toll lanes on I-405 between Lynnwood and Bellevue is a critical step to help keep traffic moving on the Eastside. Express toll lanes provide a choice for a faster, more reliable trip when drivers need it most.
What are express toll lanes?
I-405 express toll lanes let drivers choose a more reliable trip by paying a toll. Toll rates adjust depending on real-time traffic conditions and you will pay the rate you see upon entering the lanes. Solo drivers and two-person carpools during peak periods can pay a toll to use the express toll lanes with any current Good To Go! pass or using Pay By Mail at a $2 higher rate per toll.
To use express toll lanes toll-free from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, carpools will need to meet the HOV occupancy requirement and have a Good To Go! account with Flex Pass set to HOV mode.
The long-term vision includes a 40-mile express toll lane system between SR 167 at the Pierce/King County line and the I-405/I-5 interchange in Lynnwood.
