Removal of Hazard Trees on Capitol Blvd

Tree Removals will Block Capitol Blvd Temporarily

On Tuesday, January 16, 2018, a contractor for the City of Olympia will remove two hazard trees that are threatening to fall onto Capitol Blvd. Crews will close down the sidewalk and the southbound lanes of Capitol Blvd across from Adams Street SE, just east of the bridge that crosses I-5.  Motorists and pedestrians are asked to be cautious in this area and obey traffic signs and flaggers at the scene.
