Government Camp Snow Removal, a local contractor, was awarded the contract to do this work. Most of the tree felling will be completed in the next two weeks, but tree removal will be on-going for the next couple of years as additional trees are identified. It’s unclear how many trees may need to be removed in the future, but the contractor will be working closely with ODOT and District staff to determine when and how many trees need to be removed to ensure public safety.
Safety will be a top focus of the tree felling operation as rock and tree material can come down at any moment given the steep, unstable terrain. Government Camp Snow Removal will be working in coordination with ODOT to provide spotters along the route who will watch for potential risks.
