New Tree Blocks Stop Sign at Princeton and Warder — Sign to be Moved

I had a couple of people contact me about a problem with one of the new trees planted in the neighborhood recently. The issue, as you can see to the right, is that the new tree on the northeast corner of Princeton Place and Warder Street is in front of the stop sign. The concern is that the sign is difficult to see, and will be hidden behind the tree once it leafs out.

After contacting DDOT, I was informed by one of the Urban Forestry Administration‘s arborists that the tree is in an appropriate tree box and will not be moved. That said, they also pointed out that the stop sign was put in the designated tree box. So, the plan is to move the stop sign closer to the intersection and out of the tree box.

Since the tree weighs about 400 lbs and has been taken out of its containing wire basket, this is the easier approach to solve the conflict. I’ll continue to monitor the situation until it is resolved.
