The ramp improvements will create some detours around the construction. SDOT says northbound bicyclists and pedestrians will be detoured off the trail at Second Avenue Northwest and will be routed to Northwest 36th Street. “Cyclists and pedestrians will continue on Third Avenue Northwest, then onto Northwest 39th Street, and then back onto the Burke Gilman Trail. Then they will be detoured briefly off the trail around the work area at Northwest Bowdoin Place.”
Southbound bicyclists and pedestrians will be detoured briefly off the trail at Northwest Bowdoin Place, and then directly back onto the trail, says SDOT. Then, bikers will be detoured off the trail at Northwest 39th Street and routed to Third Avenue Northwest which turns into Northwest 36th Street. Bicyclists and pedestrians will continue onto Second Avenue Northwest and then back onto the trail.
SDOT expects the work to be complete by May 23.
