Bridge opponents to march today

Print Article

SANDPOINT — Opponents of a second BNSF Railway bridge across Lake Pend Oreille are holding a march today, according to Wild Idaho Rising Tide.

Bridge foes are meeting between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the WIRT outreach table under the clock tower at Farmin Park.

“We hope to talk with residents and visitors of the one-mile-wide, North Idaho ‘bomb train blast zone,’ and provide petitions, educational flyers, and brochures about Northwest oil trains and infrastructure, like the second BNSF rail bridge proposed for nearby Lake Pend Oreille,” organizers said in a statement.

The march will proceed from Farmin Park at 1 p.m.

“We will walk with signs protesting the Northwest pipeline-on-wheels and railroad expansion, through downtown Sandpoint and over the Sand Creek bridge, to the historic train station and City Beach Park. At these public destinations, we will share reflections and stories about the isolated vulnerability of rural, rail corridor people and places to oil train catastrophes,” WIRT officials said.
