As several readers have already noticed, the County is repaving a section of the Burke-Gilman Trail near Log Boom Park. Work on the 650-foot stretch of trail should be completed by Friday, according to King County Parks.
Workers are dong some root removal on the previously bumpy section of trail, then installing a root barrier and laying new asphalt. People biking will need to dismount and walk through the construction area.
Though there is no need to detour, there may be periods of 10-15 minutes or so when the trail is closed temporarily for trucks to move in and out. Flaggers will be there to control biking and walking traffic.
The bumpy section of trail is at the eastern end of the 2.2-mile section of trail painfully reconstructed last year. The work is paid from the county’s trail and maintenance fund.
