Seattle Parks and Recreation will repair and repave section of Burke-Gilman Trail in northeast Seattle

Work postponed to Monday, November 2 due to weather.

Seattle Parks and Recreation(SPR) has contracted with Statewide Parking Lot Services to repair sections of the Burke-Gilman Trail in 2020. On Monday, November 2, weather permitting, the trail will be closed between N.E. 125th Street and 42nd Place N.E. as they make trail improvements.  

Cyclists and pedestrians will be detoured around the construction area onto side streets. SPR and SDOT worked together on detour routes and we recommend trail users visit for detailed detour routes. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience during construction.

The Seattle Park District provides $250,000 in funding each year  for this Burke-Gilman Trail improvements. Trial sections were determined by 2015 condition-assessment work done in collaboration with SDOT and reconfirmed each spring. Approved by voters in 2014, the Seattle Park District provides more than $47 million a year in long-term funding for Seattle Parks and Recreation including maintenance of parklands and facilities, operation of community centers and recreation programs, and development of new neighborhood parks on previously acquired sites.
