FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — School officials say trees that were recently cut down on University of Arkansas property will be replaced as work continues to widen and upgrade a road.

The Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports some trees along Thomas Avenue near Markham Road were removed Wednesday and Thursday. The university plans to widen the east side of Thomas Avenue, including new power poles on the west side.

Fayetteville will put in a water line and a sidewalk.

Mike Johnson, associate vice chancellor of facilities, says an equal amount of caliper trees will replace about 25 pine trees on the east side of Thomas Avenue.

The university owns the property, but some of the trees were within the city’s right of way and required permission for removal.
