Scene in MLT: Street trees being installed as part of Main Street project

The Main Street contractor earlier this week began installing street trees that will line both sides of 236th Street Southwest between Interstate 5 and 56th Avenue West. NextMLT reports. The trees are being planted in tree pits that are covered by a metal grate. Ultimately, 20 trees will be installed on the project.
