Getting there: The Community Center at Mercer View is conveniently located off of Interstate 90 (Island Crest Way exit) on Mercer Island. It’s a very short walk from the Mercer Island Park and Ride, which is served by many bus routes, such as Sound Transit’s 550 Express. We strongly recommend taking transit to get the event if you’re coming from Seattle… I-90 has inherited State Route 520’s legendary traffic jams since tolling began on the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge.
For those who will be driving, consider carpooling to the event so you can use the express lanes or the HOV lanes on I-90. If you need to come from the north Eastside, take 148th Avenue NE or Bellevue Way to I-90 instead of I-405. There is ample parking available at the Community Center itself.
