Northern and Southern routes will connect the two trails

A Project Open House will be held on Wednesday, July 29, 2015 from 5:30pm - 7:00pm at Shoreline City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N, Room 301, for the Interurban Trail / Burke Gilman connections project.

Schedule for the project:
  • Design – July 2015
  • Bid and Award – August 2015
  • Construction – September/October 2015
It is being funded at $540,000 from a Washington State Grant - the 2013 Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Program.

This project will provide two routes (northern and southern) to connect Shoreline’s section of the regional Interurban Trail to Lake Forest Park and the Burke-Gilman Trail. The trail connections will be a combination of signage, sidewalks, shoulder improvements, sharrows and grade separated paths to provide the east-west routes for these important regional trails.

Specific work includes:
  • Bike lanes/rechannelization/sharrows/signage along the routes. Wayfinding signage indicating the routes are connections between the Interurban Trail and Burke Gilman Trail.
  • Sidewalk improvements on NE 150th Street, allowing bike lanes on the street from 5th Avenue NE to 25th Avenue NE.
  • If funding is available, construction of 12 foot wide multi-purpose trails on unimproved city right-of-way to provide neighborhood connections.
The project will build upon already completed bike lanes and separated trail segments previously completed or planned for construction.

The second bullet should be 15th (not 5th) to 25th.

15th Ave NE should be reduced down to two lanes with a middle turn lane. That would give it enough room for real sidewalks all the way to the county line, plus bike lanes. Perkins way is in need of shoulder improvements just for safety.
