Less than 48 hours until the tolling begins on 520 Bridge. The tolling starts at 5am on Thursday, December 29th 2001 and those without the “Good to Go” pass will be charged an $1.50 per trip. Cameras on the bridge will take photos of license plates and they will send the bill to the registered owner of the vehicle. To get your “Good to Go” pass you can go to Fred Meyer, Safeway, QFC or Costco and then activate it online or call the customer service center. There are 5 different passes you can choose from. No tolls will be collected between the hours of 11pm and 5am daily.
According to King 5 News, expect delays early Thursday morning, November 10th on the 520 Bridge as crews will be closing the drawnspan for up to 30 minutes somewhere between the time of 12:00-5:00am to perform monthly testing and maintenance work.

This week, the 520 portion closures will be in eastbound lanes from Montlake near the University District to 92nd Avenue N.E. in Medina.
