Crews working to remove large tree on Edgewood Drive in Charleston
Crews from Appalachian Power are working to remove a large tree that is jeopardizing power lines, property and traffic on Edgewood Drive near the curve around the Cato Park golf course.
Power lines – and electricity to customers – will be affected during the removal process, according to a news release from the city of Charleston.
The tree removal also means traffic on Edgewood Drive will be restricted between Beech Avenue and Baker Lane until the tree is removed and resulting power outages are restored.
Traffic to and from Edgewood Elementary School, Cato Park and Edgewood Summit will be directed toward Garrison Avenue.
Most traffic from the West Side will be detoured at Beech Avenue, although local traffic will be permitted to Swathmore Avenue and Highland Road, the city said.
