Slide closes Burke-Gilman Trail at NE 117th

Seattle Parks and Recreation has closed the Burke-Gilman Trail at NE 117th and Riviera Pl. NE at Lakeside Pl. NE because of a slide.

Parks is unable to get a crew safely into the site to clear it because of the danger of continuing slides from above.

A detour around the slide area is marked.

Parks will provide an update Monday morning.
