Abstract

The purpose of this Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is to analyze and determine what effect the replacement of Potter Road Bridge will have on the environment. Potter Road Bridge is located in Whatcom County, Washington, and it crosses over the South Fork Nooksack River near the town of Van Zandt (Figures 1,2). Building on the Environmental Checklist that was prepared by Whatcom County, this EIA identifies significant impacts on both the natural and built environment. It also looks at a no-action alternative, as well as an alternative in which the bridge would be eliminated and Smith Road would be extended eastward.
