BELLEVUE, Wash. (AP) — The Transportation Department holds more open houses Wednesday at Bellevue City Hall and Thursday at Yesler Community Center in Seattle on plans to add tolls on Interstate 90 between Bellevue and Seattle.

The tolls would balance the toll already charged on the Highway 520 floating bridge and help pay for a new bridge on Lake Washington.

More than 100 people attended Tuesday’s open house at Mercer Island. KOMO reports they objected to a toll on the only roadway off the island.

The Transportation Department will take a tolling recommendation to the Legislature.
