Stop the delay: Build the Burke-Gilman Trail

By the Cascade Advocacy Department

In 1970 neighbors and leaders had a vision to build a multi-use trail along the historic Burke-Gilman rail line from Ballard to Bothell, where it would eventually connect into a network of regional trails. It would be a trail for everyone: from long-distance bike commuters to mothers pushing strollers to runners and roller-bladers.

By 2005, the vision of the Burke-Gilman Trail (BGT) was nearly complete, and the trail was used by thousands of people daily. But the last 1.5 miles of trail remain unfinished.

 How can you help? Join us at our next meetup of Connect Ballard, a team of caring neighbors working together to complete the Burke-Gilman Trail and improve the Ballard Bridge. Monday, April 20, 6-7:30 p.m., at Peddler Brewing, 1514 NW Leary Way.
