SEATTLE —

Amtrak says it plans to add one daily round trip between Seattle and Bellingham, Wash., in the coming weeks to help travelers affected by the Interstate 5 highway bridge collapse near Mount Vernon.

In a statement Friday, Amtrak, the Washington Transportation Department, Sound Transit and BNSF Railway said they're working together to add the service. It would involve a morning departure from Seattle to Bellingham with an early evening return to help those who normally drive the route. Spokesmen said more details will be released as they become available.

Amtrak says its Amtrak Cascades service provides four trips each day over the Skagit River Rail Bridge, which remains fully functional.
