Arboretum neighbors and friends,
Thank you for registering for updates on the Arboretum Loop Trail. The contractor, Ohno Construction has mobilized to the site and started surveying, installing tree protection fencing and erosion control. Tree removals, earthwork and clearing will begin in April within the limits of the trail work. The Birch parking lot is closed.
We anticipate completion of the trail by December 2017. Safety for visitors, contractors, volunteers and staff is the priority during construction of the Arboretum Loop Trail. We will temporarily close or re-route some trails when work is taking place nearby.
The Arboretum will remain free and open to the public throughout construction. To get additional information or register for updates, please visit LoopTrail.seattle.gov.
