Emergency Tree Work on 17th Avenue NE near NE 45th Street

A Seattle Department of Transportation Urban Forestry crew is doing emergency mitigation work on a large SDOT Horse Chestnut, the 2nd tree just north of NE 45th Street on the west side of 17th Avenue NE. During the work there is no through traffic on southbound 17th Avenue NE between NE 46th and NE 45th streets.  The work should wrap up within the hour, between 11:30 a.m. and 12 Noon.   The crew will return in a few days to do additional work on the tree.
