Traffic light on second day of 520 bridge tolling

Traffic on the Highway 520 bridge was even lighter today than yesterday, according to the state Department of Transportation.

At 8 a.m., only a few cars could be seen crossing the floating bridge. Traffic across the region was light on most roadways as the New Year’s holiday approaches.

State tolling director Craig Stone said this morning that Highway 520  is “carrying about half the traffic” seen on the bridge on Tuesday or Wednesday, but he attributes most of that to it being a Friday before a holiday weekend.

Stone said that from 5 a.m. to 8 a.m. this morning, about 75 percent of all motorists crossing the floating bridge had a Good To Go! Pass.
