Last week, city contractors started some long-awaited excavation work to correct drainage issues in front of the main entrance to the Mercer Island Community and Event Center (MICEC).

Currently, seeping groundwater percolates up through pavement and sidewalks in the area, which is especially problematic to patrons during freezing temperatures due to icing, and has damaged some surfaces.

The MICEC will remain open during the project and alternative entrance routes have been established. The project does limit available parking, and the public electric vehicle chargers will be closed. City Hall’s EV chargers (1.5 miles away) are available.

The project will be done by late September.
