Seattle Department of Transportation Urban Forestry crews will be cutting back ivy and pruning trees tomorrow on Holman Road from N 105th St to 3rd Ave NW from 8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. During the scheduled work the southbound, outside lane of Holman Rd will be closed.
Work will be continued next Saturday, Nov 9, where Urban Forestry crews will support local volunteers from the neighbourhood to continue removal and cutback of ivy. Next Saturday, the southbound, curb lane of Holman Road will be closed from approximately 11th Ave NW to NW 87th St.
“Removal of invasive vines is important to the health of trees. Ivy will quickly grow up the trunk of a tree, smothering the tree’s branches, and eventually killing the tree,” writes Marybeth Turner from SDOT.
Drivers should expect delays when driving in this area tomorrow.
