When the Washington bridge over the Missouri River was approved in the summer of 1934, it had been determined that it would have to be a toll crossing. In fact, the toll rates had been set about the time the final approval was given. A story in The Missourian July 27, 1934, listed the tolls.

It must be remembered that construction of the bridge occurred at the height of the Depression in 1934. Small change was the money of the day. A dollar was sizeable currency. The tolls back then seem really cheap by today’s standards to cross toll bridges.
