With bridge in place, Amtrak ends extra Bellingham-Seattle route

With a temporary bridge in service over the Skagit River and Interstate 5 traffic back in business, the additional Amtrak Cascades passenger train service between Bellingham and Seattle will be discontinued, according to an annoucement.

Amtrak Cascades began the temporary route on May 31, in an effort to assist travelers affected by the bridge’s collapse.

AmtrakSound Transit and BNSF stepped up in the hours after the bridge collapse to help WSDOT quickly offer another mobility option for the traveling public,” said Washington State Transportation Secretary Lynn Peterson, in a press release. “I am grateful for these efforts, and that this partnership came together at a critical moment to find solutions for Washingtonians.”

Information of Amtrack Cascades’ regular service routes is  available online.
