Tree Trimming on State Route 106 -Begins April 8

Mason PUD 3 will be conducting a three-month tree-trimming project on Highway 106 beginning April 8. The work will include tree trimming and removal between mileposts 12 and 20 (approximately from Twanoh State Park to the 106 intersection with Highway 3) . Motorists may experience some traffic delays from time to time during these efforts.

Tree trimming and vegetation management are tasks that minimize the loss of power and speed up restoration of electricity during outages. PUD 3 has nearly 690 miles of overhead power lines in its service area that need to be protected from tree limbs and overgrown vegetation. Working on a six-year cycle, the PUD has a goal of clearing approximately 100 miles of right of way each year.
