Crews will remove a large blue Atlas cedar tree limb that poses potential safety hazards for pedestrians along Cherry Lane near the northwest corner of the Insurance Building on Wednesday, June 26.
Sidewalks along the northwest corner of Insurance Building will be closed during the work, and some parking spaces on Cherry Lane will be cordoned off. A small number of parking spaces on the south side of the Winged Victory circle will be cordoned off as a staging area.
Work will begin at 8 a.m. and is expected to last through early afternoon. There will be noise impacts from chainsaws and chippers.
Enterprise Services has contracted with Treewalker of Olympia for the effort. The limb removal follows work with a consulting arborist to examine the 60-foot tree.
On Friday, June 28, Treewalker also will remove three dead maple trees on the east side of the Archives Building and one dead Douglas fir tree on the north side of the Jefferson & Maple Park Visitor Parking Lot. The trees will be replaced later this year.
There will be noise impacts from chainsaws, chippers and a stump grinder. Some parking spaces in the north end of the Jefferson & Maple Park Visitor Parking Lot will be cordoned off at 6 a.m. on June 28.
Parking will not be impacted at the Archives Building.
Work will begin at 8 a.m., and is expected to last through at least 6 p.m.
