Getting There: Section of Burke-Gilman Opens Today

As we reported last week, work on the Burke-Gilman trail in Lake Forest Park is starting to wrap up.  A large section—from Log Boom Park to Ballinger Way—will open today at noon.

If you’re not already en route, jockeying to be the first one on the 0.7 miles of fresh pavement, what do you have to look forward to?  You’ll see wider pavement, safety improvements, new lighting, better crossings and fencing.  You’ll also see the disappearance of those temporary stairs.

While we continue to cross our fingers for a holiday miracle, the rest of the 2.2 miles will likely open in about five weeks.  Stay tuned or follow along on the King County Parks project website.
