Governmental agencies have begun the environmental review process for the largest proposed coal export terminal in the Northwest. It would be located near Bellingham, Washington. If it’s built the Gateway Pacific Terminal would draw trains from across the region, carrying coal from Wyoming and Montana to be exported to Asia.
And those trains would come through Seattle. That would lead to more traffic, according to a new report from the Seattle Department of Transportation. Ashley Ahearn reports for EarthFix.
