Last week’s snow and ice made things difficult for lots of people in King County – including the crew that has been putting the finishing touches on the major reconstruction of the County’s Burke-Gilman Trail through Lake Forest Park.
The good news: We’re done with the paving, retaining walls, drainage, fencing and signage along this 2.2-mile-long stretch of the BGT.
The bad news: The contractor lost the entire work week because of inclement weather, and this pushes the trail reopening back from what we had hoped would be the end of January into early February.
Work that remains includes installing concrete for the plaza on the southern side of the intersection at Northeast 170th Street.
We’ll keep you updated on the new reopening date and check here for the latest construction updates. We appreciate everyone’s patience!
