December 21, 2021, Danville, unincorporated Alamo, Walnut Creek, Concord, CA – The Contra Costa County Public Works Department has issued a permit to Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) to trim trees and remove brush along the Iron Horse Trail. Tree removal will not be part of this project. 

This annual, routine work is scheduled to begin on the week of December 27, 2021 in Danville and unincorporated Alamo. The trimming will continue the week of January 3, 2022 in Walnut Creek and Concord. Work will occur between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday thru Friday, and is expected to be complete by the week of January 22, 2022, weather permitting.
