Peacock Hill Avenue and Harborview Drive Trees Being Removed - Trees along roadway, in close proximity to utility lines, need attention

The City of Gig Harbor and Peninsula Light Company staff have been working collaboratively to mitigate possible risks from trees in the City’s right of way along Peacock Hill Avenue and Harborview Drive. Over the past several years, efforts have been taken to trim these trees to avoid disturbing power lines and interfering with large vehicles. Due to annual trimming, the trees have become a risk to the roadway, pedestrians and utility lines above.

Anticipated Project Schedule
The tree removal project should occur in October or November, as long as weather does not keep crews from completing the work. The duration will be between two and four days. The project area includes Peacock Hill Avenue between Vernhardson Street and Ringold Street, and Harborview Drive between Austin Drive and Burnham Drive.

Evaluation on the trees will continue throughout the project and those trees considered a nuisance or risk will be removed. Traffic will be re-routed or limited to one-way traffic during the project, but no significant delays should occur. The project should be completed by mid-November.
