Tolling Background

SR 520 tolling is part of the Lake Washington Urban Partnership, a collaborative effort between WSDOT, King County, the Puget Sound Regional Council, and the Federal Highway Administration to explore innovative ways to help manage congestion in the SR 520 corridor. Tolls also help build a new, safer SR 520 bridge. Tolling on SR 520 is expected to raise $1.2 billion to help fund the SR 520 Bridge Replacement and HOV Program.
