April - Notice of Tree Removal: Kichi Zìbì Mìkan Between Wavell Avenue and Westminster Avenue

As part of the Stage 2 O-Train Light Rail Transit (LRT) project, select trees will be removed along the Kichi Zìbì Mìkan (KZM) between Wavell Avenue and Westminster Avenue. All tree removals in this area have been approved by the National Capital Commission (NCC) and are pending the completion of bat and migratory bird surveys. Efforts have been made to minimize the number of trees being removed and any trees removed will be replaced by new plantings at the conclusion of the project.

Monday, April 1 at 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. until work is complete (expected by mid-April).

The construction work outlined in this notice is subject to change. Work may be delayed or extended due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
