Seattle Parks and Recreation begins repairs on Burke-Gilman Trail sections in northeast Seattle

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) will begin working on repaving 13 sections of the Burke-Gilman Trail in late October. The work will take place between 40th Ave. NE and Fairway Estates, just north of Magnuson Park. SPR awarded the construction contract to Westwater Construction. Work is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2017.

This project will repair sections of the trail, remove areas of asphalt in disrepair, remove invasive roots that are causing upheaval, and replace those sections with new asphalt. The contractor will work on one section at a time, from southwest to northeast to reduce the impact to trail users. Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will also be working simultaneously during the 4th quarter, in this same region of the trail to remove bollards/bollard plates and pave the sections that are impacted by bollard removal. Trail sections were determined by 2015 condition-assessment work done in collaboration with SDOT and reconfirmed in spring 2017.

 Cyclists and pedestrians will be detoured around the construction area onto side streets. SPR and SDOT worked together on detour routes and recommends trail users visit www.seattle.gov/parks/about-us/current-projects/burke-gilman-trail-repairs for detail detour routes. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience during construction.

The Seattle Park District provides $250,000 in funding for this Burke-Gilman Trail improvement project. Approved by voters in 2014, the Seattle Park District provides more than $47 million a year in long-term funding for Seattle Parks and Recreation including maintenance of parklands and facilities, operation of community centers and recreation programs, and development of new neighborhood parks on previously acquired sites.
