Burke-Gilman Trail Repairs

Updated: June 12, 2018

Summer 2018

Last year's trail repairs went smoothly and finished ahead of schedule despite the rainy weather. Soon we will be announcing schedules for this year's repairs. Watch this space for details. Thank you.

Thank you, Seattle. The 2017 portion of this ongoing project completed last December.

Seattle Parks and Recreation's contractor Westwater Construction completed the repair/repaving of 13 sections on the Burke-Gilman Trail that ranged in length from 5 to 150 ft. Construction started on December 4, 2017. The contractor worked on one section at a time to reduce the impact to trail users. The project, funded by the Seattle Park District, repaired sections of the trail, removed areas of asphalt in disrepair, removed invasive roots that were causing upheaval, and replaced those sections with new asphalt. The scope of this year's project was between 40th Ave. NE and Inverness Dr. NE, just north of Magnuson Park. Trail sections were determined by 2015 condition-assessment work done in collaboration with SDOT and reconfirmed in spring 2017.

Depending on the weather, work in all construction areas should be completed by the end of January 2018. Thank you for your patience.

This maintenance work is similar to the maintenance work completed in the Fall 2016 with final segment of repairs completed in November 2016. Download the PDF maps below for more details.
