Walnut Creek, Concord, CA (Jan 1, 2022) – Workers will clear brush and trim trees along the Iron Horse Trail for several weeks in January.
Contra Costa Public Works issued the permit for PG&E to trim trees and remove brush along the Trail. The project does not include tree removal.
This annual, routine work began in December in Danville and unincorporated Alamo. The trimming will continue the week of January 3, 2022, in Walnut Creek and Concord. Work will occur between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday thru Friday. Crews expect to complete the work by the week of January 22, weather permitting. PG&E contract tree crew Mowbray’s Tree Service will conduct the work.
This work is to improve trail, fire, and general safety along this portion of the Iron Horse Corridor. The trail will not be blocked to pedestrian or bicycle access, though PG&E contractors will be pruning trees in the area. Trail users may encounter some minor delays as contractor vehicles access the trail area.
