To prepare for the next phase of the "P" Street streetscape improvement project, about seven street trees will be removed in the next few weeks from Centennial Mall to mid-block between 17th and 18th streets. Streetscape work is expected to begin in April, and the trees must be removed before April 1 to comply with the Federal Migratory Bird Act.
The streetscape project involves reconstructing sidewalks and parking areas along the north side of "P" Street, as well as installing new landscaping and trees throughout the project area. Pedestrian seating will also be installed in areas along the project corridor. Some of this work will also take place on the south side of "P" Street from 16th to 17th streets.
