Charles Street - Intersection Enhancements
Location: Baltimore City, MD
Type: Streetscape, Transportation, Public Participation, Sustainable Design
Status: On the Ground
As part of the streetscape design efforts, all major intersections receive special landscape enhancements. Bulbs, flowering ground covers and perennials, evergreen shrubs as well as flowering trees were proposed. Seasonal interests of plants were carefully studied. Drought tolerant and salt tolerant plants were selected to ensure sustainable landscape interests at these intersections. Locations of flowering trees were determined based on the projected sight triangles at each intersection to ensure the safety of both the motorist and the pedestrian.
