The Fresno Bee reports:

Quote... But the trees will be removed during the fall of 2025 because of the construction project set to widen Highway 99 between Avenues 7 and 12 from four to six total lanes. The project includes placing a concrete center divider in the highway.

... Larry Johnson, a spokesperson with the Caltrans District 6 office, told The Bee that the palm and the pine will be replaced with a new marker of the divide between California's north and south — one that sticks out a little more at drivers on Highway 99.

And replaced by 30 trees in addition to an actual monument...

Now how else are we going to distinctly separate Northern from Southern California?

A sign that says END "the 99"/BEGIN "99" (reverse for the other direction)  :-D
