The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) wrote on X the toll plaza is temporarily closed and all traffic is being routed through the SR 16 eastbound mainline. During the closure, drivers who don’t already have a Good To Go! account will receive a bill in the mail for the toll.
Dattilo also reported no toll booth workers were injured in the collision.
