99th Street Transit Center | Clark County, Washington

Clark County's transit agency sought WSP to assess and coordinate permit approval when constructing a new park-and-ride bus station on a wetlands site.

People commuting from Clark County needed another place to park their vehicles and catch the bus. C-TRAN, Clark County's transit agency, wanted to construct a new park-and-ride on a site containing wetlands just off Interstate 5. WSP assisted C-TRAN by preparing an environmental assessment and coordinating permit approval with federal, state, and local agencies to ensure compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act and Federal Transit Authority requirements. The environmental assessment was also compiled to meet the requirements of the State Environmental Policy Act. Staff analyzed land use, assessed endangered species, and delineated wetlands. In addition, WSP drafted and edited the resulting project documentation incorporating agency and subconsultant comments, helped locate a mitigation site, prepared a plan for mitigation, and oversaw and monitored the plan's execution.
