Burke-Gilman Trail Repairs

Updated: October 3, 2019

Fall 2019

The Seattle Park District funds repair work on the Burke Gilman Trail. Sections of the trail in disrepair and invasive roots causing upheaval are removed 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 started on June 3rd. We are repairing up to 39 locations. Also, we are working at 24 locations to remove the bollards at road crossings identified and funded by SDOT. Work began in the south near 30th Ave NE and heads north to Seattle-King County border at NE 145th Street. We have also added the street crossings north of NE 95th which are still in progress. The site locations can be found on the overview map linked to below.

This maintenance work is similar to previous maintenance work completed since creation of the Seattle Park District. Detour routes have been identified and maps added to the website. Continue to watch this space for more details. Thank you.

All work identified in site location maps and bollard removal is complete except for the final cleanup.


Repair trail at prioritized sites as determined by 2015 condition assessment (see map above) and reconfirmed in Spring of 2017 in collaboration with Seattle Department of Transportation.
