Burke-Gilman Trail Repairs

Updated: October 10, 2017

Fall 2017

Seattle Parks and Recreation has completed the planning and design phase for maintenance improvements on the Burke Gilman Trail in northeast Seattle. The project went to bid in the summer 2017 and we are in the process of awarding the contract. We will be working on 13 sections of the trail that range in length from 5 ft. to 150 ft. We are currently working with Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) on the detour route for the repairs. The project will repair sections of the trail, removes areas of asphalt in disrepair, removes invasive roots that are causing upheaval, and replaces those sections with new asphalt. Trail sections were determined by 2015 condition assessment done in collaboration with SDOT.

We anticipate work occurring between October and December 2017. Thank you for your cooperation and patience during construction.

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.
