DISEASED PINE TREE REMOVAL NEAR CARMEL AND CARMEL HIGHLANDS ALONG SOUTHBOUND HIGHWAY 1 NEXT WEEK

MONTEREY COUNTY – A pine tree removal project at Highway 1 and Atherton near Carmel and along a 1/4-mile section of southbound Highway 1 just south of Point Lobos Park near Carmel Highlands will take place Monday, June 1 through Thursday, June 4, Caltrans officials have announced.

Tree removal at Atherton will take place Monday, June 1 only. Tree removal just south of Point Lobos Park will take place Tuesday, June 2 through Thursday, June 4. Roadwork consists of one-way reversing traffic control with flaggers from 9 am to 3 pm each day. Work should be completed by Thursday, June 4.

NOTE: There will be Electronic Message signs alerting motorists and the CHP will assist with traffic control.

This roadwork is being performed by the Caltrans Monterey Maintenance and Salinas Maintenance Tree Crews as a safety precaution to provide motorists and cyclists a safer route to travel. A 17-foot wide crane needs to be used to remove a dozen diseased pine trees from their existing location.

Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway construction zones.

For more information on this project and for traffic updates on other Caltrans projects in Monterey County, residents can call the District 5 toll freenumber at 1-831-372-0862 or can visit our website at: http://www.dot.ca.gov/dist05/paffairs/release.htm#mon
