A stunning new look to an old ugly expanse

February 10, 2014 

Florida Department of Transportation?

The intersection of I-75 and U.S. 301 (Exit 224) was a downright ugly expanse of concrete and traffic until very recently. Many palms, oaks and other varieties of trees have recently been planted at the mentioned intersection.

That effort has turned the area into a beautiful example of tropical Florida for all of us to enjoy. The effort is truly stunning and the responsible parties need to be thanked!
