Urban Forestry crews from the Seattle Department of Transportation will close East Roy Street to through traffic between Harvard Avenue East and Broadway East on Friday, April 8 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for work on a large, historic Elm tree.
Traffic will be detoured around the work area: eastbound traffic on Roy will be detoured southbound to Harvard Avenue East and then to East Mercer Street; westbound traffic will be redirected to Broadway, then to East Mercer Street and then northbound on Harvard. On-street parking will not be allowed on the detour routes.
Urban forestry crews will prune the tree to provide adequate clearance from buildings and the street area, and to promote the long-term health of the tree.
