Remic Rapids work to close parking lot, SJAM trail
As part of its invasive species management strategy and emerald ash borer management program, the National Capital Commission (NCC) will be working to remove invasive species in the Remic Rapids parking area. Dead trees and trees that pose a safety risk to the public or the work crew will also be removed. This work is being undertaken to prepare for the replanting of native trees and shrubs, which will take place in spring 2019. The work will be undertaken from November 26 to December 14, 2018, between 7 am and 5 pm, weather permitting. The parking lot will be closed to the public, but will reopen once the work is completed. For public safety, the winter trail will be temporarily closed for two days while wood chipping is being done. Signage will be installed to indicate that work is in progress, and workers will ensure the safety of pathway users close to the work area. Workers will be using mechanical equipment for this work.
