The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is hosting a second 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 first was held Thursday, April 20, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at Trinity Baptist Church, 800 Hammond Boulevard, Jacksonville, Florida 32221, and the second will be held Monday, November 6, same time and location.
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 landscap?ing design team will be available to answer questions and discuss the landscaping improvements proposed for the interchange. This was an informal open house and no presentation was scheduled.
The current proposal for this $1 million landscaping project includes 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 expected to start in late 2018.
The landscaping project has been developed as a concept through District Two’s FDOTree program, a District Two initiative created to inform and educate the public about the Florida Department of Transportation’s Northeast Florida landscaping programs.
