Amtrak Cascades will add one round trip route between Bellingham and Seattle in the coming weeks to assist travelers affected by the Interstate 5 bridge collapse in Skagit County.
Amtrak is working with the Washington State Department of Transportation, BNSF Railway and Sound Transit to add a morning departure from Seattle to Bellingham, with an early evening return.
More details will be released as they become available.
Amtrak currently provides four trips each day over the Skagit River Rail Bridge, which is fully functional.
