And unfortunately, this stretch of N Mercer Way does not have bike lanes, so people biking will be directed to mix with car traffic. People walking will be directed to use a path on the street. It’s not a terribly busy road, so people comfortable with a little mixed traffic biking will be fine. But it’s not a great option for people of all ages and abilities.
The I-90 Trail is scheduled to be closed near N. Mercer Way and Shorewood Dr. Thursday, Feb. 6 – Saturday, Feb. 8 from 7 a.m. – 5 p.m. Crews will be landscaping along the trail. Due to the weather-sensitive nature of this work, dates and times are subject to change.
There will be a bicycle and pedestrian detour available along N. Mercer Way to minimize impacts for trail users. Eastbound travelers will detour near Fortuna Dr., and westbound travelers will detour just before Shorewood Dr. To ensure safe use of the detour, please follow signage along the route. Cyclists are encouraged to share the roadway with vehicle traffic, and there will be a designated walkway for pedestrians. Parking along the route will be restricted.
