Contact Staff: Bruce T. Kaschyk, AICP
 

The main entrance to Hurlburt Field from US 98 is being reconstructed into a flyover, with ramps connecting US 98 with Cody Avenue. This provided an opportunity to establish a signature, Bold landscape as a gateway to the Air Force Base. Specimen Palms will flank the intersection itself, with Drift Rose at their bases. Sabal Palms planted in informal groupings will soften the tall MSE walls, while assureing that Air Force emblems embedded in the walls are clearly visible. Ranks of Washington Palms and Cypress trees will line each side of the approaches to the overpass, and Magnolias and Chaste trees will add visual interest to the infields. Identification signs along US 98 will be enhanced with new ornamental trees and palms.

Construction is scheduled for Fall 2015.
