I-90 Trail: Tree Removal in Mercer Island Begins Soon

King County is upgrading four miles of sewer pipeline across north Mercer Island and south Bellevue.  Tree removal needed for construction will begin at the North Mercer Pump Station as early as Friday, June 17. Tree removal along the I-90 trail starts as early as next week.

As a part of this project, King County will plant 600 new trees across Mercer Island to replace the nearly 400 trees we remove. King County is removing trees to make space for new infrastructure and equipment.  The project's tree plan can be found here.
