Burke-Gilman Trail Repairs

Updated: September 13, 2018

Fall 2018

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 that were 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.

This year's repairs will start in Mid-October. We will be repairing up to 39 locations depending on the construction contract award. We will start at the northern Seattle-King County border at NE 145th Street and head south to 30th Avenue NE. We are coordinating the work with King County to reduce the impact to trail users. King County will be working in the area just North of NE 145th Street. The site locations can be found on the overview map linked to below.

Once the construction contract is awarded, a more accurate construction start date will be added to the web page. Continue to watch this space for more details.  Thank you.

Depending on the weather, work in all construction areas should be completed by the end of January 2019. Thank you for your patience.

This maintenance work is similar to the maintenance work completed in 2016 and final segment of 2017 portion of this ongoing repair project completed in December 2017.
