Burke-Gilman Trail Repairs

Updated: April 25, 2019

Spring 2019

The Seattle Park District funds repair work on the Burke Gilman Trail. Sections of the trail in disrepair are removed along with removal of the invasive roots causing upheaval, and new asphalt is installed. Trail sections were determined by 2015 condition-assessment work done in collaboration with SDOT and reconfirmed in spring 2017.

The contract for this year's repairs was awarded to NW Asphalt. Construction will start at the end of May or early June, once the required permits have been approved. We will be repairing up to 39 locations. Also, we will be working on 15 locations to remove the bollards at road crossings identified and funded by SDOT. Work will begin in the south near 30th Ave NE and head north to Seattle-King County border at NE 145th Street. The site locations can be found on the overview map linked to below.

Once the permits are approved, a more specific construction start date will be added to the web page. Continue to watch this space for more details.  Thank you.
