Subject: Delays and detours on Burke Gilman Trail near Montlake Blvd
During the weeks of June 13 and June 20, Seattle City Light (SCL) will be performing utility work on utility poles along the UW section of the Burke Gilman Trail near Montlake Blvd. Trail users should expect delays and detours throughout the two-week period, as described below. As always, please exercise extreme caution and reduce your speed when traveling in a construction area.
We anticipate work to proceed as outlined below; however, SCL may need to adjust their schedule to respond to emergency work elsewhere in Seattle. Detour routes and traffic control measures should be as described even if there is a change in dates.
Week of June 13:
During the week of June 13, SCL will be replacing utility poles between Pend Oreille and Mason Rd Path (the path between the Burke Gilman Trail and the Padelford Garage). SCL will have trucks parked on the east side of the Trail and will be controlling Trail traffic with signs and flaggers. Trail users should expect delays through the narrow section of Trail that remains open and adjust their plans accordingly.
Week of June 20:
During the week of June 20, SCL will be replacing utility poles just south of Mason Rd Path. Because this section of the Trail is narrow, SCL will need to fully close the Trail to accommodate trucks. A detour will be signed along Mason Rd Path, Mason Rd, and Hec Ed Path. Due to the sharp turns on the Hec Ed Path, Trail users who have strollers, long bicycles, or bicycle trailers may wish to bypass the Hec Ed Path by continuing on Mason Rd and reconnecting with the Burke Gilman Trail at Rainier Vista.
If you have questions about the Trail delays and detours, please contact UW Commuter Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your patience and understanding throughout this maintenance process.
