Temporary closures of small sections of trail 45 along Leitrim Road, between Hawthorne Avenue and Ramsayville Road, in the Pine Grove sector of the Greenbelt. The work will be undertaken from Monday, March 8, to Friday, March 12, 2021, between 7 am and 5 pm, weather permitting. The NCC will be removing 728 ash trees affected by the emerald ash borer in those forested areas.
This work will require temporary closures to protect trail users from hazards in the work area. Users are encouraged to use other trails in the Greenbelt pathway network during the work. There will be no road closures.
The National Capital Commission (NCC) urges users to exercise caution, respect work crews and equipment, and obey flag persons and signage at the site.
This work is part of the NCC invasive species management strategy and emerald ash borer management program.
