Starting Monday, Jan. 8, the City of Venice will initiate the replacement of downtown sidewalk trees that were lost due to Hurricane Ian. The project will primarily affect the sidewalks of the 200 and 300 blocks of West Venice Avenue, mainly on the eastbound side, as well as the 200 block of Miami Avenue.

To ensure the safe completion of the tree replacements, periodic lane and parking space closures will be necessary from Jan. 8 to Feb. 16. Some parking spaces may be closed overnight.

Motorists and pedestrians should exercise caution during tree replacement and be alert for changing traffic patterns and sidewalk work zones.
