Missing Link Environmental Scoping Open House August 8

SEATTLE — On Thursday, August 8, the Seattle Department of Transportation will host an open house for the Burke-Gilman Trail Extension (Missing Link) Project to take comments on the scope and alternatives to be considered in the project’s proposed Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). Stations at the meeting will include the EIS scoping process and timeline, existing area zoning, and aerial maps for the public to note how they suggest connecting the Burke-Gilman Trail through Ballard. The meeting will be held:

When:    Thursday, August 8, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Where:  Ballard High School Commons
1418 NW 65th Street, Seattle, 98117

The Missing Link Project would complete the regional trail system running through Seattle, to Issaquah via the Sammamish River Trail and the East Lake Sammamish Trail. Completing the project is the city’s top-rated trail priority as identified by the Bicycle Master Plan.
