Tree Trimming to Start in Potter County

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is advising motorists that work to trim and remove trees is set to start next week on two different routes in Potter County. This work will enhance motorist safety and extend the useful life of the roadway surface.

Locations for this work are Route 6 in the Sweden Valley area and Route 44 north of Coudersport in Eulalia and Hebron Townships.

Work could begin as early as Monday, January 17 and is expected to last for several weeks. Work will occur on weekends if necessary.

Tree trimming and tree removal provide “daylighting” to the roadway, allowing sunlight to speed snow and ice melt during the winter months. It also enhances sight distance at some locations and lessens the potential for old and dead trees to fall onto the road.

Motorists may encounter short delays as roadway flaggers enforce an alternating traffic pattern during this operation. Drivers should remain alert for flaggers and stopped or slowed traffic.

All work will be done during daylight hours and is weather dependent. Patriot Tree Surgeons of Allentown, PA is the contractor for this job.

Wonder who's bright idea it is to put work crews out on winter roads trimming trees! Shouldn't this type of work be done in the summer months? Smart real smart!
