Genesis is providing roadway landscape for the interchange of a four-lane divided roadway and I-75. The project includes preparation of landscape plans that will be designed to provide aesthetic appeal for the travelling public and adjacent properties.

The landscape construction is set to immediately follow the roadway interchange redesign and construction. The design team conducted field review and coordination with the roadway engineers to assess current site conditions and adjacencies, investigate opportunities and constraints, document site features such as existing vegetation, overhead electric, drainage, lighting roadway signs, underground utilities, billboards, etc. that may impact the design.

The design team has selected iconic species such as Live Oak, Southern Magnolia, and American Sycamore to establish a memorable landmark along the I-75 corridor. Bald Cypress and Fakahatchee grass provide a water tolerant and naturalistic buffer for existing retention ponds and promote waterfowl and animal habitat.

 To maximize safety for landscape maintenance crew members, the steep slopes flanking the I-75 overpass bridge have been entirely planted as an alternative to turf which needs to be maintained with machinery.
