PROJECT STATUSThank you Seattle! This project is complete.
A grand opening celebration was held on May 12, 2007.
Chief Sealth Trail projected was implemented by Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) with support of $2.1 million for the trails project from the Pro Parks Levy.
SDOT is managing this trails project in Southeast Seattle. See the SDOT project webpage.
The first phase of the trail runs through the Seattle City Light Utility Corridor, and traverses southeast Seattle from Beacon Hill to 51st Ave S at S Gazelle St.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION"Continue improvements and connections of Chief Sealth Trail."
The Chief Sealth Trail will be the first off-street, multi-use trail in southeast Seattle. When completed, the trail will stretch from Beacon Avenue South on the north to Seattle's southern city limits. The project will provide access to Sound Transit LINK Light Rail stations at South Othello and South Henderson Streets.
The trail will provide a fully-separated surface and appeal to a broad range of users (cyclists, pedestrians and wheelchair users) as an alternative to the city street system.
For more information about the project, please contact Project Manager Connie Zimmerman at Seattle Department of Transportation, 684.5184 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In February 2005, SDOT published the first edition of a periodic project newsletter about the Chief Sealth Trail. Please advise Connie Zimmerman if you would like to be added to the mailing list.
