King Conservation District Grant to fund replacement of Eagle Landing stairs
The King Conservation District Board has approved a grant for $12,300 to support Burien Parks replacement of the chronically storm-damaged stairs at the base of the Eagle Landing Park trail.
“The funds will be used in partnership with EarthCorps to abandon the lower stair segment that drops visitors onto the beach, and will replace it with a short gravel trail and boardwalk leading visitors to the upper beach, just to the north,” according to an announcement in the Burien City Manager’s report.
This access will eliminate the need for stairs dropping off the steep, storm-prone bank, and will instead follow natural land contours for approximately 70 feet north, and onto the upper beach.
Work is scheduled for spring 2014.
