Bicyclists and pedestrians can now enjoy a new addition to the Ship Canal Trail. The existing trail extended along the south shore of the ship canal from the Fremont Bridge to 6th Avenue West. Now SDOT’s contractor has lengthened the trail to 11th Avenue West.
The work which began in February included paving the trail, removing railroad ties and rails, installing low retaining walls, installing chain link fencing, and adding signage and wheel stops. In addition, a new portion of paving on 11th Avenue West and West Ewing Place was added. Finishing details will be completed in the next few weeks.
