    Tree Removal

    Pima County Department of Transportation discovered a large bee hive today, in one of the trees designated for removal. The hive has been treated but will require 36 hours before they can be moved. The work schedule remains the same, however, the road closure has been pushed back slightly.

    As a reminder, the trees identified by the Department are considered to be in a vulnerable condition and have become a public safety concern. Consequently, several trees along Camino de la Tierra will be removed from the county right of way.

    Schedule: work will be performed between September 14 and September 18. Work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

    **Road Closure: Camino de la Tierra between Mulberry Tree Lane and Las Palmas Drive will be closed on Thursday, September 17 and Friday, September 18, from 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. to allow heavy equipment and haul vehicles to safely move around the work zone. The roadway will reopen each day after 4 p.m. Local traffic and emergency vehicles will be facilitated through the area during the closure, others should seek alternate routes.

    Please approach the work zone with caution, obey all traffic control devices and allow additional time for your travels during this work. In the event of inclement weather, schedule is subject to change.
