Tacoma Narrows Bridge Quick Reference

ROAD BASICS

The Tacoma Narrows Bridge is, perhaps, most notorious for the collapse of old "Galloping Gertie", famously seen, in old film footage, jiggering wildly in the winds of the sound before collapsing into the waters beneath her. Of course, today's bridge spans are nothing like the old 1940 Tacoma Narrows Bridge.

Today, Tacoma and Gig Harbor are connected by a pair of suspension bridges that carry traffic across Puget Sound. The bridges are just over a mile across, at about 5,400 feet, rising over 187 feet above the water, at their highest point. The oldest span was completed in 1950, and it is the replacement for the 1940 bridge. The newest span was opened in 2007, and now the old span carries traffic westbound, while the new span carries eastbound traffic.

It is the eastbound travelers who are charged. A toll plaza just to the west of the bridge, adjacent to the 24th Street exit, collects tolls from travelers leaving Gig Harbor for Tacoma. The main toll plaza has a staff to collect tolls, and an open-road-tolling gantry for those who are using electronic tolling.

Those who elect to get onto the bridge form 24th Street are charged electronically or by plate only, as there is not a staffed toll booth on the entrance ramp.

While the length of the bridge spans is only about one mile, the bridge is part of Washington State Highway 16. Therefore, a length of roadway approaching the Tacoma narrows bridge on the east and west side is shown for reference.
