Mudslide closes Burke-Gilman at N.E. 117th St.

Seattle Parks and Recreation has closed the Burke-Gilman Trail at NE 117th and Riviera Pl. NE at Lakeside Pl. NE because of a slide.

Parks is unable to get a crew safely into the site to clear it because of the danger of continuing slides from above, according to a Parks press release.

A detour around the slide area is marked.

An update will be provided on Monday, the release said.
