Islander Middle School field to be closed for renovations July 20-Aug. 31

The field’s synthetic turf is to be replaced; new coating, patching and painting will also be completed.

The Islander Middle School field will be closed off from the public for the next few months, the Mercer Island School District (MISD) said in a recent release on its website.

Starting July 20, the MISD and the city of Mercer Island will begin replacing the synthetic field currently at the middle school. The work will also include new patching and coating and new painted lines on the track.

Renovations are expected to be complete by Aug. 31. According to the district, the area will be fenced and secured to ensure the site stays off limits.

Construction oversight on the project is being provided by CPM Seattle, a consulting firm specializing in private public-and private-school construction projects.

In addition to working with the MISD on construction for more than a decade, CPM Seattle has also assisted the Snoqualmie Valley School District, the city of Mercer Island, Seattle Public Schools, the Bellevue School District and other entities on various ventures.
