Construction alert: Mercer Island Station, 6/8/2018

Jun 8, 2018

Upcoming I-90 ramp closures

Progress continues on the steel installation for the 77th Avenue head house. In the coming weeks, crews will continue to install steel supports, storm drains and will begin backfilling portions of the work area. To do so, both the east- and westbound Island Crest Way HOV ramps are planned to close daily during off-peak hours, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., through June 22. Drivers can use the West Mercer Way and 76th Avenue Southeast westbound on-ramps and the West Mercer Way and 77th Avenue eastbound off-ramps during these closures.

Closures are planned to occur daily but may happen sporadically. Drivers should pay attention to signage and overhead reader boards for more information.
