The United States Coast Guard announces the availability of a draft Environmental Assessment (EA) in accordance with National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), as amended, and the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), as amended, for the proposed construction of railroad bridges across Lake Pend Oreille and Sand Creek at Sandpoint, Bonner County, Idaho. The proposed bridges will be built parallel to existing railroad bridges crossing the same waterbodies. As structures over navigable waters of the United States, the proposed bridges will require a Coast Guard Bridge Permit. The Coast Guard is making the draft EA available for public review and requests public comments. In order to ensure the widest dissemination possible, the Coast Guard distributed a separate document announcing this Notice of Availability to a mailing list that includes seasonal residents and visitors to the Lake Pend Oreille region.
