Just 1 more day till Highway 520 tolling begins

SEATTLE (AP) -- Just one more day before tolling starts on the state Highway 520 floating bridge across Lake Washington.

The tolling kicks in at 5 a.m. Thursday. It's part of a plan to ease congestion and pay for a replacement bridge.

Rates are based on the time of day and range from $1.10 late at night to $3.50 at peak times, in each direction. Those rates are for drivers who have a state-issued Good to Go sticker that works like a debit card.

Those without the sticker will be billed by mail for the toll -- plus a $1.50 surcharge.
