Tree Trimming and Removal Work Scheduled for Elk County

Tree Trimming and Removal Work Scheduled for Elk County
Safety enhancement work may bring short travel delays

Clearfield –Work to enhance safety along two Elk County roads will get under way Monday, Jan. 13. On Monday, crews will begin trimming trees and selectively removing others on Route 555. Once work is complete on Route 555, crews will move to Route 2007 (Old Kersey Road). Work will take place as weather allows and is currently expected to last four to five weeks.

The tree removal will eliminate some trees close to the road, increasing driver safety. In 2012 Pennsylvania experienced 1,310 highway fatalities, over 49 percent of which involved a vehicle that left the roadway.

The process of trimming or removing branches that overhang the roadway is referred to as “day-lighting.” Day-lighting is performed to allow more sunlight to reach the road surface, preventing ice accumulation during the winter months. Year-round visibility is also increased through this practice.

The tree work could bring short travel delays through January for area drivers. Motorists need to be alert for flaggers along the roadway and the possibility of stopped or slowed traffic near the tree-trimming activity. Roadways sections that will see trimming or removal activity in Elk County are:

• Route 555 between Weedville and Benezette
• Route 2007 between Route 255 and Kersey

Penn Line Service Inc. of Scottsdale will perform the work. Drivers are reminded to avoid aggressive driving behaviors such as speeding, use caution in work zones and always buckle up.
