19,000 bills to go out for Highway 520 bridge tolls

The Washington State Department of Transportation expects to mail out its first batch of toll-related bills within the coming week  to drivers who crossed the Highway 520 bridge without an automated pass.

WSDOT said it will mail about 19,000 toll bills to drivers who crossed the bridge between Dec. 29, 2011 and Jan. 4, 2012.

Drivers who opted for the mailed bills are charged $1.50 more per trip than drivers who use the automated “Good to Go” pass.  The agency said the higher rate covers the cost of generating the bills.

Drivers can pay their toll bill online, by phone at 866-936-8246, by mail or in person at a customer service center in Seattle, Bellevue or Gig Harbor.
