Mason Street Tree Removal

On Monday, July 16, Mason Street will be closed between Mulberry and Magnolia streets while City forestry crews remove a hollow cottonwood tree that poses a risk to public safety. The tree removal is scheduled concurrently with the railroad repairs, because no trains will be running on that stretch of track.
