72nd Ave. Planter Box Renovation Project

The planter boxes along the 72nd Avenue and Federal Boulevard corridors will be renovated to re-establish a more aesthetically pleasing landscape through the use of xeric, drought tolerant, and native plant material. These plantings will provide flowering and color throughout the growing season, which will beautify and rejuvenate this highly-traveled corridor.

Timeline: The renovations are estimated to start on April 8, 2024, with an estimated completion of Fall 2024.

Scope: 177 planter boxes along 72nd Avenue from Eliot Circle west to Meade Street and along Federal Boulevard from 74th Avenue to 72nd Avenue will be renovated. This will involve replacing dead plant material and empty planters with xeric plantings and a layer of rock mulch.

Traffic Impacts: Drivers can expect sporadic lane closures throughout the duration of the project. Please follow all directional signage in the area.
