Open House for Burke Gilman Trail “Missing Link”

Opportunity to review trail designs

SEATTLE – The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) is hosting an Open House to discuss the proposed trail alignment that will extend Seattle’s Burke Gilman Trail through Ballard. The project team has been developing design details for the trail route adopted by the City Council in 2003. Trail design visuals will be on display and the design team will be available to answer questions about this proposed new connection to the regional trail network.

For years, the Burke Gilman Trail has ended in Ballard at NW 45th Street and 11th Avenue NW. This new piece of the trail, commonly referred to as the “Missing Link,” will ultimately be connected to the Ballard Locks. The route from the Locks to NW 60th Street was completed in 2005. The route from NW 60th St. to Golden Gardens on Shilshole Bay is currently under construction.

The Open House will take place on Thursday, November 15th at 6 p.m. in Whitman Middle School, at 9201 15th Avenue NW in Ballard.

For more information about the project contact project manager Kirk Jones at 206-615-0862 or at KirkT.Jones@Seattle.Gov.

The Seattle Department of Transportation builds, maintains and operates Seattle's $8 billion transportation infrastructure. To further Mayor Nickels’ goal to get Seattle moving, the department manages short- and long-term investments in streets, bridges, pavement and trees, that better connect the city with the region.
