TREE REPLACEMENT PROJECT
The week of February 17, crews will begin replacing 16 pear trees on East Pioneer (Near SR Hwy 512). These trees were left structurally weak after being heavily damaged by the 2012 ice storm. Traffic will be reduced to one lane during the tree removal. The area will be replanted with trees and shrubs that can safely thrive along East Pioneer while providing natural beauty for the enjoyment of passersby.

Construction activity will begin on the north side of 5th Avenue NE and continue north to 608 3rd Street NE. The replacement should be completed by March 13.
