The Burke-Gilman project in conjunction with the Triangle/Rainier Vista project will effectively close the Burke-Gillman trail from 15th AVE NE to the Snohomish Overpass (Hec Ed pavilion) limiting access to the HSB and UWMC. The timeline and full impacts of this project are still unknown. However, the closure could begin April 24th, 2014. The Hitchcock and T- Wing 4th floor overpasses will be closed during specific date ranges and times (there will be access via one of these overpasses for the majority of the project), these specifics are unknown at this time. This is part of the campus trail project and light-rail system improvements. There will be more information coming soon including an informational open house and table sessions in the HSB.
More information about the project can also be found at: http://www.washington.edu/facilities/transportation/tip/bgt

The MTP is a multi-agency effort consisting of three subprojects centered around the intersection of Pacific Street and Montlake Boulevard. The project scope includes lowering NE Pacific Place and constructing a land bridge connecting the Montlake Triangle and the lower Rainier Vista. The bridge will create a seamless experience for all non-motorized modes. People traveling from the north and south can access the Triangle via a combination of existing crosswalks and a new bridge being constructed by Sound Transit. The bridge will span across Montlake Boulevard between the University Link Light Rail station and Rainier Vista.
In order to accomplish the next phase of work, the Burke-Gilman Trail will need to be rerouted via a detour. The MTP detour will take users around the lower Rainier Vista using the existing trail, which will be enhanced with a new paved surface to accommodate all modes and user capacity. The Burke-Gilman Trail is expected to be closed and the MTP detour opened the first week of February 2014. Construction is scheduled to be complete by August 2015 and the Burke-Gilman Trail reopened to users.
Once the Burke-Gilman Trail is detoured, eastbound vehicle traffic on NE Pacific Place will be rerouted to the existing bridge currently used by the Trail. Southbound Montlake vehicle traffic going west will continue past the southern tip of the Triangle and turn right onto NE Pacific Street.
The MTP is part of the overall Campus Master Plan to transform and activate the Rainier Vista and Montlake Triangle area as a more vibrant public space and connect people to transportation options. Project funding agencies include the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), Sound Transit and the University of Washington. The City of Seattle is also providing project support services and pedestrian improvements along Pacific Street.
