There are two small trail detours to be ready for today and tomorrow. Neither should be a huge hassle, but it’s always wise to give yourself a little extra time when there is trail work just in case.
1/19-20: Ship Canal Trail near Seattle Pacific University
The Fremont Siphon project team has been pretty great about providing quality trail detours for their work in Fremont. Now the project team is restoring a section of the Ship Canal Trail near their worksite on the south side of the Ship Canal. The trail will be detoured, but once again the project team appears to have a quality detour plan.
So there shouldn’t be much of a delay, but be ready to stop for construction equipment.
1/19: Seattle Parks clearing Burke-Gilman landslide near NE 125th
Regular Burke-Gilman users are surely used to the winter season landslide closures. It’s here again.
Details from Seattle Parks:
Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) will be working to clean up debris and provide ditch maintenance at two landslide sites along sections of the Burke-Gilman Trail in northeast Seattle starting at 8 a.m. on the morning of Thursday, January 19. SPR anticipates completion by early afternoon on the same day.
Trail users will experience short intermittently closures between NE 125th St. and NE 135th St. on the Burke Gilman Trail to allow trucks to access the site and remove debris. SPR will provide flaggers to minimize impact to trail users.
