Readers have contacted the Patch team wondering about trees being removed in certain areas of town. We contacted Geoff Gillette, Danville's public information coordinator, who provided the following response via e-mail:
There are trees being removed along Camino Ramon, also along San Ramon Valley Boulevard. The removals are part of a Caltrans project to add an auxiliary lane along I-680.
Trees and shrubs will be replanted once the sound walls have been moved.
Further information from a Danville Today report published earlier this month:
Once construction of the auxiliary lanes is complete, over 600 new trees and approximately 1,000 new shrubs will be planted along both sides of I-680 between Sycamore Valley Road and Crow Canyon Road.
The landscaping will be aesthetically pleasing and create a consistently green visual character along the I-680 corridor, softening the appearance of sound walls and other freeway structures. Ivy will also be planted to grow onto the sound walls along the corridor.
For further details, view the Danville Today report on the city's website.
