Burke-Gilman Trail Mock-up Project

View of the new Burke-Gilman Trail Mock-up located next to the intersection of Adams Ln NE and Cowlitz Rd NE.

On March 28, work finished on the Burke-Gilman Trail Mock-up Project, previously known as the Mercer Court/Stevens Court Demonstration Segment. Located next to the intersection of Adams Ln NE and Cowlitz Rd N, the BGT Mock-up Project will provide the opportunity to further test the surface materials and methods that will be used for the length of the UW portion of the Burke-Gilman Trail.

With the mock-up now open to the public, we’re inviting feedback on the different trail transition sections which will be marked on the trail as zones A, B and C.
