Event: Monday, May 7 at 7:00 PM CWB Briefing on GPT Railroad Traffic Impacts on Waterfront
CWB to Brief Bellingham City Council on GPT Railroad Traffic
Monday May 7 at 7 PM in Council Chambers, City Hall, Bellingham
Communitywise Bellingham has reviewed years of past studies performed by WSDOT, BNSF and various transportation consultants to assemble a summary briefing of issues relevant to impacts of the additional railroad traffic. The summary does not attempt to open any new ground but lays a foundation about what is already known and offers suggestions of ways that any negative impacts can be diminished. The summary is also informed by new reports commissioned by CWB to (1) examine the accuracy of those past conclusions in light of the current circumstances, and (2) examine the alternate inland route.
