Burke-Gilman Trail Repairs

Updated: March 3, 2017

Thank you Seattle! This project is complete.

The final segment of repairs were completed in December 2016. Thank you for your cooperation and patience during construction. 

Seattle Parks and Recreation awarded the construction contract for repairs to Westwater Construction. They anticipate work to be completed in early 2017. The project repairs 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 Seattle Department of Transportation.

The contractor and Seattle Parks and Recreation will detour cyclists and pedestrians around the construction area onto side streets. The contractor will work on one section at a time, from east to west, to reduce the impact to trail users.  Maps below provide more information about the detour routes.

Seattle Parks and Recreation will also perform small asphalt repairs on the Burke Gilman Trail in November between Gas Works Park (Meridian Ave N) and the I-5 bridge and may require bicyclists to dismount and walk around repair work (no detour route will be required).
