How was the trail improved?
The redevelopment project improved the safety of the trail by widening it to a 12-foot trail with soft surface shoulders, enhancing traffic controls and intersection and crossing treatments, and installing lighting and other trail amenities. Other upgrades include a new stormwater system, retaining walls, slope stabilization, replacement of the Lyon Creek Bridge, and installation of native vegetation.

Project funding
Funding for the Burke Gilman Trail Redevelopment Project is provided in part by the 2008-2013 voter-approved Proposition 2 Parks Open Space and Trails Levy. Construction of the Burke Gilman Trail was approved in the 2008 budget. King County Parks thanks you for your support!
