Here’s a heads up for First Street commuters in the Puntledge neighbourhood.

Crews will be removing some hazard trees on the hill near Menzies Avenue.

The work will take place on Thursday and Friday from 8:30am to 3:30pm both days.

Contractors working on behalf of the city are doing the removal.

Expect single-lane alternating traffic.

There could also be periods of full closure closure during the tree cutting and lowering of debris. 

Pedestrians will be  held on the sidewalk and guided through the work zone when it’s safe to go through.
