Living near the Lebanon/Hillcrest intersection, I am glad to see the median improvements happening on Lebanon Rd. I do have a question about it though. I think I recall hearing that Lebanon is planned to eventually be widened to a six lane road. Is this true? If so, it appears that some of the trees are being planted in such a way that they would need to be removed in order to widen the road.

Thank you for your inquiry regarding the trees planted in the Lebanon Road medians. I spoke with a representative from the Engineering Department and he said that although Lebanon would eventually be widened, there are no plans to do so in the near future. However, I am sending one of our Parks Supervisors to assess the planting see if some of the trees might need to be relocated further away from the existing curb.

I just wanted to update Bob Johnson's response to your question about the Lebanon Road medians and our inspection of the trees that were in place there.
As mentioned in Mr. Johnson's message, we did send out staff to the site to assess whether or note some of the trees were in need to be relocated further away from the existing curb. Based on that inspection, we did indeed see the need to transplant some of the trees more central to the affected medians. This work has been completed and we will continue to assess potential issues such as this in the future.
