The estimated $1 million landscaping project will focus on the interchanges and have a naturalistic approach utilizing hardwoods and pine trees and includes irrigation and other incidental work relating to the overall aesthetics of the 1.6-mile Hart Expressway corridor. The project is currently in its conceptual design phase, with construction not expected to start until summer 2020. The project is expected to take approximately four months, weather and unforeseen delays permitting.
The landscaping project has been developed as a concept in conjunction with District Two’s FDOTree program, a new initiative created to educate the public about the Florida Department of Transportation’s Northeast Florida landscaping programs.
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) hosted a public meeting to gather feedback from the community for the Hart Expressway landscaping project which includes three interchanges at Atlantic Boulevard, Alternate U.S. 1, and University Boulevard on Thursday, December 6, 2018.
