BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Southbound border crossings picked up in the second quarter, but it may not be enough to indicate a new trend.
More than four million people crossed the border into Whatcom County in the second quarter, up about 121,000 from the same time last year.
The Bellingham Herald reports that Western Washington University’s Center for Business and Economic research says the increase doesn’t look too significant.
The center says it could be caused by a number of things, including the Skagit River bridge collapse in May of last year.
