Find the BGT Missing Link – Public Meetings

BGT 04

The Burke-Gilman Trail (BGT) is one of the most heavily used pedestrian and bicycling facilities in Seattle, a vibrant trail connecting multiple neighborhoods and other city and regional trails. It serves as a major transportation corridor for commuter and recreational bicyclists.

The Burke-Gilman Trail Extension (Missing Link) Project would connect two existing portions of the Burke-Gilman Trail through the Ballard neighborhood, to complete the regional facility that otherwise runs continuously from Kenmore Park to Golden Gardens. Currently, the trail ends at the intersection of 11th Avenue NW and NW 45th Street (on the east), and begins again at 30th Avenue NW at the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks (on the west). The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) proposes to connect these two segments of the BGT with a marked, dedicated route for pedestrians and cyclists.

This project is one of the City of Seattle’s top-rated trail priorities as identified by the Bicycle Master Plan. A complete trail network improves Seattle’s health and quality of life by providing safe bicycle and pedestrian travel routes for residents of all ages.
