Snoqualmie Ranger District Road Repairs

The Snoqualmie Ranger District, Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, is seeking feedback on several proposed road repair projects. Heavy rains during the 2016 winter damaged numerous roads and trails within the Snoqualmie Ranger District. The Forest is working to restore access for Forest users by repairing roads that have experienced serious storm-related damage while also maintaining aquatic and wildlife habitat standards. Project activities would include road grading, placement of roadway surface, asphalt paving, construction of mechanically stabilized earth retaining wall and special rock embankment, as well as bank stabilization. The projects are located on NFS lands in King, Pierce, and Kittitas Counties, Washington.

More information:
For more information about the proposed repairs and how to submit your comments, please view the scoping letter on the project website:
https://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=52035

Thank you for your interest in the management of Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest

Excelsior Mine Plan of Operations project

The Mt. Baker Ranger District has prepared a final Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Excelsior Mine Plan of Operations project. The project is now subject to a 45-day objection period prior to final decision. The District has prepared a draft Decision Notice-Finding of No Significant Impact (DN-FONSI) for review. It describes the selected alternative, and provides rationale for it.

A copy of the Environmental Assessment (EA) and Draft Decision Notice (DN) / Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) can be found on the Forest’s website at: https://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=43458

In addition, a copy of the objection period cover letter can be viewed and downloaded at the project web page, under the decision tab. The cover letter describes the minimum requirements of an objection and how to submit an objection. A legal notice is scheduled to be published in the Bellingham Herald. A copy of the published notice will be uploaded to the project website. Objections must be received by the Reviewing Officer within 45 days following the publication date. Those wishing to file an objection to this decision should not rely upon dates or timeframe information provided by any other source.

Rainbow and Swift Creek Crossings - Scoping Bulletin

Proposed Action
The Forest Service proposes to improve safety, trail connectivity and overall sustainability of a section of the PNT that crosses fast moving, high volume, Rainbow and Swift Creeks. At this time we are exploring and analyzing two different crossing methods, a bridge system or a cable car system. Each system will vary in regard to its components, the way they attach to the existing landscape, in cost and in environmental impacts. In conjunction with these crossings there will be about one mile of new trail construction connecting the crossings to the existing Swift Creek Trail.

The other crossing will be built on the Wilderness boundary and the one mile of new trail falls outside of the Wilderness boundary and we anticipate using power tools and equipment to construct this new trail.

Purpose and Need

An increasing number of through hikers are having trouble finding a safe place to ford these creeks. The purpose of this effort is to provide safe and sustainable crossings across Rainbow and Swift Creeks along the Swift Creek Trail for hikers. Current trail connectivity is unsafe.

Location

The project is located north and northwest of the Baker Lake within the Mt. Baker Ranger District of the Mt. Baker Snoqualmie National Forest. Legal Location Descriptions: Township 38 North, Range 9 East Section 17, 18, 19 & 20.

NEPA Documentation

Pursuant to the regulations at 36 CFR 220.6, this project is expected to be categorically excluded from documentation in an Environmental Assessment or Environmental Impact Statement. There are no known extraordinary circumstances related to the proposed action and it fits within the following category:

36 CFR 220.6(a)(1): Construction and reconstruction of trails.

How to Comment

Electronic comments are preferred and should be submitted with the following subject line, “Rainbow and Swift Creek Crossings Project”, and as part of the actual e-mail message, or in another readable format such as plain text (.txt), rich text format (.rtf), .pdf, or Word (.doc or .docx) to: comments-pacificnorthwest-mtbaker-snoqualmie-mtbaker@fs.fed.us

Written comments should be mailed or dropped off in person at the Mt. Baker Ranger District, 810 SR 20, Sedro Woolley, WA 98284.

Please address your comments to the responsible official, District Ranger, Erin Uloth. Office hours for submitting hand-delivered comments are 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

Comments received, including names and addresses of those who comment, will be part of the project record and available for public review. Comments would be most helpful if received by August 4, 2019. For more information please contact Rourke McDermott at 360-854-2611.

Two of these projects have been of high interest here:
Restoring the Milk Creek Bridge
Determining log term access needs to Monte Cristo.

Both of these will have decisions made in the next month
