Starting Wednesday, March 28, the Burke Gilman will be closed temporarily in small sections while crews from the Seattle Department of Transportation remove 14 bollards between NW 43rd St. and NW 36th St. The work will be done between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. through Thursday, March 29.
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.
