Crews to work on the Burke Gilman trail this week

Crews from the Seattle Department of Transportation will remove 14 bollards this week along the Burke Gilman Trail between NW 43rd Street and NW 36th Street. They plan to perform this work on Wednesday and Thursday, March 28 and 29, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

Small sections of the trail will be closed at intersections while the crews remove the bollards and replace them with asphalt. The trail will remain open with only small detours around the work area to minimize impacts on trail users. There will be signed detours in place and flaggers on the trail if they are needed.

The bollards are being removed to improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians along the trail. This work is funded by the Bridging the Gap transportation initiative approved by Seattle voters.
