The purpose of this project was to improve the safety conditions, reduce congestion and provide sufficient capacity to serve the existing and the future needs. The impacts of the new highway, interchange and bridge construction were examined and analyzed. The issues and problems were identified. Landscape and environmental mitigation strategies were developed. A concept design that responded to the highway construction impacts and an IFB were prepared. The recommendations included highway landscape design, screening the unsightly, interchange landscaping, stormwater management pond landscaping, roundabout landscaping, reforestation as well as bridge abutment beautification.
