Beginning Oct. 26, King County Parks will set up temporary detours around segments of the Burke-Gilman Trail in Lake Forest Park while crews begin removing 40 hazardous Lombardy Poplar trees.
The hazardous trees are located along the Burke-Gilman Trail between Ballinger Way Northeast and Northeast 165th Street in Lake Forest Park.
The temporary closure will take place mid-day Monday through Friday and last for two work weeks. The trail is expected to be open in the evenings, with closings lasting from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. There are two trail segments that will be affected. To minimize impacts to adjoining neighborhoods, only one trail section will be closed at a time.
One detour will start at Northeast 165th Street and route trail users along Beach Drive Northeast before rejoining the trail at Northeast 170th Street. The other detour will start at Brentwood Place Northeast and route trail users along Northeast 171st Street before rejoining trail at Northeast 170th Street.
