KING CITY — Construction crews have begun the removal of olive trees along Broadway Street in King City in preparation for the City of King’s Downtown Streetscape Project.

The project will expand the corner bulbouts, redesign the medians and add decorative crosswalks on Broadway, from Second to Russ streets.

Improvements will include new landscaping, benches, planters, trees, public art, trash and recycling receptacles and bike racks.

According to City Manager Steve Adams, the project requires the olive trees to be removed to address drainage issues, but they will be replaced with twice the number of trees.
