WHAT: Low-hanging tree branches lean over the road. Residents fear that during heavy rains, the branches will fall on the road or a passing vehicle.

WHO’S RESPONSIBLE: Augusta-Richmond County Department of Engineering

ACTION PROMISED: Steve Cassell, the City of Augusta’s assistant director of traffic engineering, said he will send staff this week to possibly prune the branches. Cassell said the city likes to have tree branches provide at least eight feet clearance for pedestrians and 15 to 19 feet clearance for vehicles and commercial trucks.
