Right of Way Tree Trimming
City of Brighton DPW crews will begin a comprehensive ROW tree trimming program. This is needed so that tree limbs and branches hanging over the roadways do not damage our plow trucks, obstruct signage and cause sight-distance issues for vehicles turning.
This work will begin in the fall of 2017 and will continue through the winter and into the spring of 2018.
In order to make the tree look aesthetically pleasing, there may be need for us to trim the sidewalk side of the tree also.
Please note that if a privately-owned tree is hanging into the roadway, the City will be in direct contact with the property owner to discuss options for the trimming of those limbs and branches.
