I saw something in FB yesterday, but the news article was in Arabic, and I don't know which paper it was in, but it said the fee would be 25 BD (250 SAR). I think it's still a rumor though...nothing official yet.

Neither of the BNA news articles indicate that any of the fees or increases would apply to travel via the causeway. Anyway, we're planning on going over to Bahrain during the Eid holiday so I guess we'll find out then.
