Governor's Tacoma Narrows Bridge
advisory committee seeks new members
(Port Orchard, WA) – Kitsap County residents
have the opportunity to advise the Washington State Transportation
Commission on new toll rates for the Tacoma Narrows Bridge.
The Tacoma Narrows Bridge Citizen Advisory Committee, with nine
governor-appointed members, has two vacancies. Kitsap County residents are
encouraged to apply, especially those who commute between Kitsap and Pierce
counties. This citizen advisory committee makes toll rate recommendations to
the state transportation commission on all matters related to tolls
including the feasibility of frequent-user discounts, electronic
transponders and senior citizen and student discounts. The committee may
also study how toll rates relate to retirement of debt incurred when the new
bridge was built and how tolls may vary depending on the time of day.
Members must be permanent residents of the affected area and serve at the
pleasure of the Governor without compensation.
