The Lak Front Royal Sanitary District is pleased to announce the start of a major hazardous tree removal project. The project location includes a small portion of Creek Road and the lower portion of Mountain Heights Road up to the High Ridge Road intersection. The approximately 77 large trees are located within the shoulder areas of roadways and area considered fixed object safety hazards. In some cases they are interfering with roadside drainage and our ability to adequately mow roadside vegetation. An area that is approximately 6’ – 8’ wide from the edge of the roadway pavement will be cleared of the larger trees. Clearing of overhanging tree limbs will also be taking place in the work area where the trees are being removed.
The work is being performed by T-n-T Tree Services of Front Royal, Virginia. Weather permitting, work is expected to begin early in the week of June 26, 2017 and take approximately two weeks to complete. Work will take place between the hours of 7:00 AM – 7:00 PM. The work zones will require the stoppage of traffic for short periods of time while trees are being taken down. Residents and motorists should plan for these brief delays and plan their trips and detours around the work sites.
Depending on location, the trees will be removed and/or cut into 10’ – 12’ lengths and stacked behind the roadside ditch for fire wood. Anyone wanting firewood should seek permission from the adjacent property owner before taking it.
