The Florida Department of Transportation is hosting the first of two open houses to gather feedback from the community for a proposed landscaping project at the newly constructed interchange at Hammond Boulevard and I-10.
The open house is Thursday, April 20, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at Trinity Baptist Church, 800 Hammond Boulevard, (Building D, Side A) Jacksonville, Florida 32221.
Those interested can drop by anytime between 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. to learn more about the landscaping project and provide feedback to project staff. The landscaping design team will be available to answer questions and discuss the landscaping improvements proposed for the interchange. This is an informal open house and no presentation is scheduled. To provide comments electronically, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, April 28, 2017.
The $1 million landscaping project will include plantings of numerous species of trees and shrubs, installing fountains in two ponds, irrigation and other incidental work relating to the overall aesthetics of the western approach to Jacksonville from the I-10 corridor. The project is now preparing to go into final design, with construction not expected to start until late 2018.
The landscaping project has been developed as a concept through District Two’s FDOTree program, a new initiative created to educate the public about the Florida Department of Transportation’s Northeast Florida landscaping programs.
