Burke-Gilman Trail to close for City Light work

By master · July 7th, 2009 · No Comments

The Burke-Gilman Trail will be closed intermittently starting Wednesday as Seattle City Light continues to replace old wooden power poles with steel ones and replace the 200-foot steel lattice towers. The trail will be closed between Fremont Ave. N. and Phinney Ave. N. from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Work will not be done on weekends and is expected to wrap up next Friday, July 17th. Mike Eagan with Seattle City Light says that westbound pedestrians and bicyclists can bypass the closure by using N. 34th St. from Stone Way N. Expect another closure in August so crews can finish their project.
