When we think of landscape it often involves thinking about our homes and businesses. Well, how about large corridors designed for moving a vast amount of traffic daily? How would you go about designing and installing effective landscape?
Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) provides this opportunity for you to do just that – and hosted an open house to gather feedback from the community for proposed landscaping of the Overland project
The open house was held July 13 at FDOT’s Training Center Building in Jacksonville. More than 40 people dropped by, viewed plans and talked with landscape architects and project managers.
If you were not able to attend you may still provide comments to Jan.Herbst@dot.state.fl.us by Friday, July 21, 2017.
The landscaping project includes plantings of numerous species of trees and shrubs, irrigation and other incidental work relating to the overall landscape for the downtown Interstate 95 corridor. Construction is not expected to start until summer 2019.
The proposed landscape project is developed through District Two’s FDOTree program, a new initiative to promote communication and delivery of FDOT Northeast Florida landscaping program.
