King County Parks makes safety upgrades at two intersections along Burke-Gilman Trail in Kenmore
King County Parks is making safety upgrades along the Burke-Gilman Trail at two driveway crossings in the vicinity of 91st Ave. Northeast in Kenmore.
Beginning Oct. 22, trail users and motorists could experience intermittent delays of up to five minutes while crews install trail alert bars, signage, striping and access control at the intersections. Flaggers will be in place to route trail users and motorists around the construction work.
The work is expected to take about one week to complete, and the project could be delayed if the weather is poor. Completing the work will bring the two intersections up to existing King County Parks regional trail standards.
The Burke-Gilman Trail runs more than 18 miles from Shilshole Bay in the City of Seattle to the City of Bothell where it intersects the Sammamish River Trail. Part of the "Locks to Lakes Corridor," the trail crosses Ballard, Fremont, Wallingford, the University District and View Ridge within the City of Seattle, as well as the cities of Lake Forest Park, Kenmore and Bothell.
The trail is managed by Seattle within the city limits south of Northeast 145th Street and by King County outside Seattle. More information is available at http://www.kingcounty.gov/recreation/parks/trails/regionaltrailssystem/burkegilman.aspx.
