Launching into a full reopening

King County crews will be paving and restoring the Mercer Island Boat Launch parking lot and fully reopening it for recreational use in June, according to the city. The boat launch is located at 3600 East Mercer Way. The county had been utilizing a portion of the parking lot to store construction equipment as part of the North Mercer Island/Enatai sewer upgrade project. Construction activities will continue near Frontage Road and residents are asked to be cautious when in the area by following directions from signs, flaggers and traffic control signals. Boat-launch information and permits are available online. Visit:
