City officials continue to gather information and weigh in on the regulatory review process for the Gateway Pacific Terminal, proposed to be located at Cherry Point north of Bellingham in unincorporated Whatcom County.
The regulatory review process is being led by Whatcom County, the state Department of Ecology and the United States Army Corps of Engineers.
The Gateway Pacific Terminal is proposed as a multi-modal, deep-water terminal to provide storage and handling for the export and import of up to 54 million metric tons per year of dry bulk commodities. Application materials for the proposed terminal describe operations that include 18 additional individual train trips (nine round trips) per day traveling through Bellingham.
