Put the Missing Link on Leary and Market Street
BETTER. SAFER. CHEAPER. LET’S GET IT DONE.
The Burke-Gilman trail is a Seattle jewel that attracts walkers, joggers, and cyclists year-round. It’s time to finally complete the trail through Ballard.
Current plans call for completing the Burke-Gilman ‘missing link’ in Ballard through a dangerous area with heavy industrial traffic in Shilshole, a plan that’s expensive, unsafe, and would remove up to 340 parking spots from local merchants while potentially costing dozens of maritime and other jobs.
OUR PLAN calls for completing the missing link at Leary Way and Market, a thriving, vibrant part of town with dozens of local shops and restaurants to explore. This area is well-traveled and well-lit. It’s safer and provides a recreation destination in Ballard for visitors and residents alike.
Our Plan costs at least $15 million less for much more:
· More Safety.
· More Recreational Opportunity.
· More Job Security.
· More Value for Your Tax Dollar Investment.

I support building the Burke-Gilman missing link at Leary Way and Market, a thriving corridor for trail users. Instead of spending more tax dollars on an unsafe trail that could cost jobs in an industrial area with heavy equipment traffic, I support a better and more cost-effective solution.
Please put the missing link at Leary Way and Market. It’s safer, better, and cheaper. Let’s support local businesses and save at least 15 million tax dollars. Let’s protect jobs. Let’s protect trail users.
