Burke-Gilman Trail to reopen today with celebration

Tuesday the popular Burke-Gilman trail will reopen after being closed since the summer of 2011. A celebration is planned in nearby Lake Forest Park from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., featuring a ribbon cutting, prizes and fun. The gathering will be at the intersection of NE 165th St and the
Burke-Gilman Trail.

The redevelopment project improved the safety of the trail by widening it to a 12-foot trail with soft surface shoulders, enhanced traffic controls and intersection and crossing treatments. The trail also features lighting, a new stormwater system, retaining walls, slope stabilization, replacement of the Lyon Creek Bridge, and installation of native vegetation.

In other two-wheeled news, Columbia City's popular Bike Works program may be coming to Lake City.

Note: You may have noticed many bicycle-related posts here on this blog recently. It is not by design, just happens that there is much going on in the neighborhood related to two wheels the last couple of days. Send us your story ideas at: douglasparkcooperative@gmail.com
