Alert: Slide blocking Burke-Gilman Trail in Lake City

UPDATE: The trail reopened Wednesday.

The atmospheric river inundating Seattle has triggered a small landslide along a slide-prone section of the Burke-Gilman Trail in Lake City between Lakeside Place NE and NE 112th Street. Seattle Parks says they hope to clear the trail by 4:30 p.m.

The (hopefully) good news is that this section of the trail happens to have easy access to Riviera Pl NE, so trail users should have access to an easy detour around the slide. But be prepared for delays if you’re traveling through.

    Looks like the same trail section that gets blocked with most serious rainstorms, near 130th N.E. Surprise, surprise…
