The work is scheduled between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., with the exception of Wednesday, Feb. 27, when no work will take place All work is weather permitting.
Motorists should expect delays and allow for extra travel time. The trees are part of the Tunnel of Elms on SR-29. Two of the trees are diseased.
