VANCOUVER – A western segment of the Burnt Bridge Creek Trail, between Northwest Lakeshore Avenue/Fruit Valley Road and Alki Road, will be temporarily closed from 7 a.m. to approximately 4 p.m., Sat., Aug. 8, while Vancouver Public Works Operations crews repave and restore the trail surface.

During the one-day project, all public access to this western segment of the greenway trail, in an area west of Interstate 5, will be temporarily restricted. Signs alerting the public to the closure will be posted at access points leading into the segment where work is occurring. All other segments of the Burnt Bridge Creek Trail east of Alki Road will remain open.

The project addresses a stretch of trail where the pavement had worn away and had to be removed. Operations crews have been busy with street paving preparations and repairs throughout the city during the current dry summer weather. Completing the trail repaving on Saturday allows this project to continue forward under the current workload and be done quickly to address safety for walkers and bicyclists on the trail.
