SR 87 and I-10 Interchange

Client: FDOT District 3
Location: Santa Rosa County, FL
Service: Transportation & Mobility

Contact Staff: James P. Sullivan, P.E.
 

Under a continuing miscellaneous landscape architecture services contract with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District 3, Genesis was responsible for Landscape design and construction assistance for enhancing several interchanges along the I-10 corridor. As part of this effort, the department selected the State Road 87 intersection for enhancement, which is also included within the Departments Intelligent Transportation System.

The existing conditions of the interchange presented many challenges and opportunities for landscape improvements. Existing trees and shrubs stood in irregular patterns, creating meadow-like openings with dappled sunlight. Genesis took advantage of these naturalistic patterns by using them as backdrops and creating unique planting islands with native plants that thrive in limited sunlight. Invasive species found on site were removed and additional native tree species were added to enhance existing plant community.
