Willow trees victim of construction

Willow trees victim of construction

N-willow-trees-taken-down-001Bob and Mary Lou Fuller, of Solon Township, live right in the midst of the area under construction on Northland Drive, just north of 16 Mile. As a result of the road being widened, a couple of their stately willow trees had to come down.

“Bob planted them so they were about 45 years old,” Mary Lou told the Post.

The willows have not been the only casualties. The construction has also been rough on cars trying to get in and out.

N-willow-trees-taken-down-005After the heavy rain last Friday, the northern section of the road became like a bog, with at least seven cars getting stuck in the mud. At least one, and possibly more, had to be pulled out with a tow truck.

It’s a good idea to avoid that stretch of Northland (from South Street to 16 Mile Road) unless you live in that area.
