The work will be undertaken on the SJAM Winter Trail in the Remic Rapids parking area, from November 26 to December 14, 2018, between 7 am and 5 pm, to allow the removal of invasive species, dead trees and trees that pose a safety risk to the public. The parking lot will be closed to the public, but will reopen once the work is completed.
For public safety, the winter trail will be temporarily closed on December 3, 4 and 5, 2018, while wood chipping is being done. Signage will indicate that work is being carried out, and workers will ensure the safety of pathway users in the work area.
The National Capital Commission urges motorists and pathway users to exercise caution, respect working crews and equipment, and obey signage and flag persons on-site.
This work is part of the NCC invasive species management strategy and emerald ash borer management program.
In spring 2019, following the invasive species removal, the NCC will be replanting native trees and shrubs.
