A number of identified trees on the Park Avenue School property will be removed this week by the Department of Transportation (DOT).
According to Freehold Borough Mayor Nolan Higgins, the DOT will be operating on Park Avenue between Kiawah Ave and South Street on Tuesday, Sept. 25 Wednesday, Sept. 26 and Thursday Sept. 27.
“A JCP&L tree person came in and identified trees in that area that need to be removed,” said Nolan.
The Tuesday and Thursday tree removal will be occurring during school times but Freehold Borough Police Chief Glen Roberts told the Borough Mayor and Council that those roads will be closed on those days.
“The police will be visible and available to assist children going to school on the days of road construction,” explained Roberts.
