Cross Kirkland Corridor

Burlington Northern Santa Fe sold its railway from Renton to Woodinville to the Port of Seattle in 2009.  The City of Kirkland purchased a 5 mile section of it in April 2012 with an eye to converting it to a multi-use trail.  Sound Transit continues to own an easement allowing the construction of a transit project through the corridor.  It will be challenging reconciling these two purposes.

Exploring the now-public portions of the rail line requires a bit of adventure, as there is no trail, and it is quickly becoming overgrown with opportunistic birches and maples.
