Tree removal to impact traffic on Pearl Street next week
The City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) will be removing two damaged cottonwood trees along the west end of Pearl Street. The work is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, Jan. 17, and be finished by the end of the week. This schedule is weather dependent.
Due to several defects these two cottonwood trees have been identified as hazards to the public and to public and private property. While the contractor is on site and working, Pearl Street will be closed from Canyon Boulevard to Third Street.
Rumor of plans to evacuate city east of Broadway are STRONGLY denied.
