Bike Skills Area temporarily closed for repairs

According to the city of Mercer Island, the Bike Skills Area at Deane’s Children’s Park is temporarily closed this week while a crew from the American Ramp Company completes work on the ground anchors that secure wooden features along the Green Line. The repairs — which are anticipated to be completed by early next week — are necessary to ensure the safety of the crew and the community, the city said. For updates and reopening information, visit:
