Road crews on Island Crest Way are continuing construction on Mercer Island's largest road and utility project this summer, completing installation last week of storm drainage pipes and catch basins along the northbound side of the road from the 5200 block up to 86th Avenue.
This week, contruction workers began saw cutting and pavement removals in advance of new curb and sidewalk work. Watermain work at the Merrimount Drive intersection also got underway. Insallation and electrical work, however, was delayed and did not start work as previously planned.
City engineers say the remaining storm drainage work on Island Crest Way and watermain work at Merrimount Drive will be complete by the end of this week and is still on schedule. The electrical contractor will be installing conduit for several new streetlights along the project, and curb and sidewalk prep will continue. The City expects a concrete crew to be on site later in the week to begin curb work that will start at the south end of the job and progress northward.
