Meeting to discuss environmental impact of ‘Missing Link’ next week

Posted by Meghan Walker on July 29th, 2013

On Thursday, August 8, the Seattle Department of Transportation will hold a meeting to discuss the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Missing Link, which is the unfinished portion of the Burke Gilman Trail between  11th Avenue NW and NW 45th Street and 30th Avenue NW at the Ballard Locks.

SDOT is widening the scope of the EIS to cover transportation (parking, traffic and traffic hazards), land and shoreline use; earth; plants and animals; historic and cultural resources; and economics. They’ll look at a number of alternative trail alignments and designs. A popular yet debated alignment plan would put the trail along the railroad corridor on Shilshole Ave NW, but several maritime and industrial businesses along Shilshole worry about the potential safety hazards of introducing an established bike path along a fairly busy corridor.

The meeting is 6 to 8 p.m. on Aug. 8 at BHS (1418 NW 65th St). If you can’t attend the meeting, comments may be submitted to Peter Hahn or Mark Mazzola at SDOT by 4 p.m. on Aug. 16. by mail at 700 5th Avenue, Suite 3900, Seattle, WA 98104 or email at For additional information, visit Sustainable Ballard’s website about the meeting.
