Burke-Gilman Trail Missing Link

Review Status

On August 3, 2017, we reviewed the concept design for the Burke Gilman Trail Missing Link. At this meeting we voted to approve the concept design with several recommendations.

Project Description

The Burke-Gilman Trail is a 20-mile long regional trail connecting Bothell to Golden Gardens.  The trail serves as a major transportation corridor, connecting many neighborhoods throughout the region.  The trail currently consists of two segments, which are separated by a 1.4-mile gap.  The Missing Link project will provide a 1.4-mile trail through the Ballard neighborhood, connecting the two existing trail segments to provide a complete trail corridor.  The project will reallocate space within the right-of-way along NW 45th St, Shilshole Ave NW, NW Market St, and NW 54th St and will also include safety improvements for pedestrians, bicyclists, vehicles, and trucks.
