The city is building a new high quality crosswalk between the Burke-Gilman Trail and Shilshole Marina, so expect delays and a detour for the next couple weeks if you’re heading out toward Golden Gardens.

Details from SDOT:

Beginning as soon as March 27, the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) will build a new crosswalk, curb ramps and a pedestrian island on Seaview Avenue NW between the Burke-Gilman Trail and the south entrance of Shilshole Bay Marina. The improvements will make it safer and easier for everyone to cross the street, including cyclists, pedestrians and people who use wheelchairs or other mobility aids.

Building the improvements will require a temporary, up to 2-week detour of the Burke-Gilman Trail at this location to repair the trail asphalt and provide a smooth connection to the new curb ramp. SDOT will set up a clearly marked detour for trail users for the duration of construction.

What: Temporary closure and associated detour for Burke-Gilman Trail

Why: To build a safe street crossing at the south entrance of Shilshole Bay Marina

When: As soon as Friday, March 27 and lasting up to 2 weeks

What to expect during construction

  • Typical weekday work hours, 7 AM to 3 PM
  • 7 construction days, up to 2 weeks of total construction time
  • Detour on the Burke-Gilman Trail. Please follow posted detours and avoid disturbing work crews.
  • Parking restrictions. Park at least 10 feet from “no parking” signs and avoid parking between signs.
  • Removal of items in the public right of way
  • Noise, dust and vibration associated with concrete removal and paving

    Awesome that we’re getting a real crossing to Shilshole Marina. Right now when I ride out there, I just have to get off my bike on the trail, step over some rose bushes and a curb, then dash across the street on my bike. Obviously, a crosswalk with curb ramps will be a whole lot less awkward.
