Derecho Cleanup at Penn and Front Streets May Impact Traffic
Crews continue cleanup work on derecho-damaged trees in and overhanging the right of way, and will be working around the intersection of Penn and Front streets this week, and there may be some minor impact to traffic in the area.
The contractor is expected to work through December. This work is being completed at no cost to the property owners.
All work will be within the bounds of Front, Zeller, Stewart and Penn streets, with additional work along East Chestnut Street. There will be occasional street closures during the work.
Earlier, city staff identified trees requiring trimming or removal. Trees identified for branch trimming were marked with a ◯ (circle), while trees identified for complete removal were marked with a ✗(cross). Staff is working to make contact with the property owners.
