Work to Begin on Burke-Gilman Trail at Stone Way North


(SEATTLE)--Starting Monday, October 13th, northbound traffic on Stone Way North will be temporarily restricted to one lane. This will allow crews to widen the ramps where the Burke-Gilman Trail intersects with the street. Southbound traffic on Stone Way North will not be affected. Bicyclists on the Burke-Gilman Trail will need to dismount and walk their bikes on a temporary path at Stone Way North and North 34th Street, past the construction area.

Crews will work on the trail for the next five to ten days. Some of the utilities at the intersection will be relocated to allow for the widening of the ramps. This will provide more crossing room for trail users and bring the ramps up to Americans with Disabilities Act standards.

This part of the Burke-Gilman Trail will become part of the new Cheslahud Lake Union Loop that will encircle Lake Union.

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.
