BGT - phase 1 Dec 2013Work started Monday, Dec. 2, to create a new connection to the Burke Gilman Trail. The project’s general contractor, Sellen Construction, is putting up temporary fencing and taking over a portion of the Hartmann Building parking lot in preparation for constructing the new link.

The new connection will traverse the Hartmann property and tie the trail to the new traffic signal/crosswalk at Sand Point Way NE and the new cycle track that runs in front of the hospital.

Work will take place between 7 a.m.-5 p.m. on weekdays only – no weekends or holidays. No noisy machinery will operate between 7-8 a.m. Construction will cause only minimal traffic disruptions because most work will be staged from the rear of the Hartmann property. The trail will remain open during all phases of construction. 

The project is expected to be completed early next year. Continue to check the Construction Blog for future project updates.
