Tree Removal Part of Van Dorn Widening Project

To prepare for a widening and resurfacing project on Van Dorn Street, several trees will be removed the week of March 16 on the north side of the street from 33rd to 37th street. This section of Van Dorn will be closed periodically from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the tree removal.

Construction is scheduled to begin on Van Dorn from 33rd to 48th streets near the end of May. The trees must be removed by April 1 to comply with the Federal Migratory Bird Act. The City has marked the trees that will be removed. Some stumps will be ground down while others may remain for removal by the roadway contractor.

For more information on the tree removal or the project, contact Jess Sundeen, City Construction Project Manager (402-416-5341,, or Erin Sokolik, City Design and Construction Engineer (402-416-9460,
