Landfill and cemetery also close due to high winds
A large, rotting tree on North Richardson Avenue between Eighth and Ninth streets is in danger of falling amid today’s (Wednesday, March 13) high wind conditions. North Richardson has been closed to traffic between Eighth and Ninth streets and is expected to remain closed for much of the day. A tree removal crew will be on scene to remove the tree as soon as possible. Businesses and residents of that block have been informed. Citizens are asked to avoid that part of Richardson today.
Also, because of the high winds, the landfill and South Park Cemetery have each closed for the day. The landfill closes any time there are strong enough winds. The cemetery has closed for public safety reasons involving the wind toppling trees and blowing tree limbs around.
