Washington state is integrating tolling as a strategic tool to help manage congestion, enhance mobility and generate revenue for future improvements. When studying tolling, WSDOT evaluates the funding and congestion management needs for a corridor along with impacts and benefits to the transportation system and surrounding communities.
Since 2007, WSDOT has implemented a range of tolled projects that are helping to fund new facilities and manage traffic throughout the state. Ultimately, the Washington state Legislature determines which facilities are authorized to be tolled. The Washington State Transportation Commission determines the toll rates and exemptions.
