Residents who live within the Phase II Combined Sewer Overflow construction area – encompassed by Telegraph Road, Cherry Hill, North Martha, and Wilson streets – should be aware of plans regarding tree removal and replacement in the affected area.
A meeting was held on Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014, regarding the removal of trees on streets within the construction area.
During the construction in section “A” of the area in 2013, it was determined that a number of trees must be removed from the easements of affected streets. Streets in section “B” of the construction area will also have many trees removed during construction in 2014.
New trees will be planted by the City of Dearborn in section “A” wherever trees were removed, or as requested by residents. This planting will occur in April and May of 2014.
The planting of new trees in section “B” will occur in the spring of 2015.
The trees will be planted free of cost to homeowners in the areas impacted by the sewer separation project. Residents in section “A” have already been notified of the tree replacement initiative, and should have ordered a tree by Nov. 15, 2013. Residents in section “B” will be notified once tree-planting options are available in their area.
Residents with questions about the tree-planting program should call 313-943-2107.
Questions regarding the construction project should be directed to the City’s Engineering Division at 313-943-2045.
