$10 toll on I-405? It's possible, transportation officials say

BELLEVUE, Wash. (AP) — The peak toll could be as much as $10 for a driver who wants to drive in the express lane after tolls are imposed on Interstate 405 between Bellevue and Lynnwood.

Transportation officials expect the typical toll will range from 75 cents to $4. And carpools with three or more people will be exempt from the toll, although they must have a Good to Go account and Flex Pass, which the state Transportation Department will offer this spring.

The state Transportation Commission is taking public comment on the tolling proposal at a meeting Tuesday at the Bellevue City Hall.

The express toll lanes will open later this year on the Bellevue-Lynnwood stretch of I-405.
