Kim Brown, Public Lands Intern
I'm pretty excited about this - I've waited so long! No time to write a sappy and poignant blog right now - I wasn't expecting this 'til Monday, so I'll just cut to the chase: the Suiattle River Road repair project Environmental Assessment has been posted, and the 30-day public comment period has opened.
The Mountaineers will post more information later, but we wanted to get this to you immediately!
I copied and pasted this entire notice from Federal Highway's website. Plan to attend the Open House in Everett on March 29th (see notice below).
