Broward County will begin some tree removals next week on Palm Avenue. This is part of the overall plan for widening Palm Avenue. This will mostly be cutting down those trees that are not being relocated. While there may be some minor impacts to traffic in the immediate work zone while removing a tree, do not expect any significant traffic concerns during this phase of the work.
The widening of Palm Avenue is a County Project. Trees that have orange construction fencing around them will be relocated to the property directly south of SW 55th Court. This area is being developed as a drainage pond and passive park as part of the widening project.
The trees that are being removed have been deemed poor candidates for survivability or have root structure involvement with underground utilities.
If you need any additional information please contact Julio Gurrea, Project Manager, Broward County Highway Construction and Engineering Division at 954-577-4599.
