656.01 Description. This work consists of cleaning up outside the excavated and filled areas and disposing of undesirable plants and other vegetative growth, prunings, rubbish, stumps, conspicuous stones, all down timber, dead brush, logs and timbers; felling and destroying of all snags and such dangerous trees; and pruning trees, native shrubs and similar vegetation but does not include work to be performed under Item 201.
656.02 Intensity of Cleanup. Control the intensity of cleanup to effect a natural transition in cleanup treatment from the edge of the pavement outward to the limits of the Right-of-Way to avoid sharp demarcation between the artificial and the natural.
656.04 Pruning. Prune trees 6 inches (150 mm) or less in diameter and native shrubs and similar vegetation according to Item 666. Consider the diameter of existing trees to be the diameter measured at 54 inches (1.4 m) above the ground.
The Department will determine the boundaries of the area to be cleaned up and the number of units.
