I was delighted to see this enthusiastic review of the I-90 bridge bike path, by the Oregonian. Excerpt:
“The crossing of Mercer Island is through a string of neighborhoods and pleasant parks, though the bike path is a bit confusing as it joins the sidewalk to pass in front of the island’s park and ride.
