Ballot measure to raise bridge tolls heading to voters

Gov. Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 595 Tuesday, authored by state Sen. Jim Beall (D-San Jose), which would authorize a region-wide vote on the toll hike to raise an estimated $4.2 billion for local transportation projects.

Though the ballot measure would hike tolls on seven Bay Area bridges if approved in 2018, the Golden Gate Bridge would not be affected because its Board of Directors sets tolls independently.

The Bay Bridge and other bridges may see a hike of up to $3, if approved by Bay Area voters.
