Burke-Gilman Trail tunnel in Bothell to be closed for maintenance

King County Parks has been making nighttime repairs and improvements to the Wayne Tunnel on the Burke-Gilman Trail in Bothell since early March, including sealing leaking joints, and preparing the tunnel walls for a new mural that will be painted there later this year.

"We’ve scheduled the work during the overnight hours in an attempt to minimize impacts to trail users, however, we realize that some trail users could be impacted by this nightly closure," said Doug Williams, a spokesperson with the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks.

Additional work must be done that will require a trail closure through the tunnel, from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. nightly, beginning tonight, March 17 and running through March 21.
