8MBA Secures $13K from MDOT to Enhance Eight Mile Median Gardens

May 19, 2014 2:42 PM | Deleted user

8MBA is gearing up for warmer weather with enhancements to the 36 perennial gardens we’ve installed and continue to maintain along the corridor.

Thanks to $13,000 from MDOT, we will be redesigning plant beds to reduce materials usage and installing new plants to provide lush, vibrant landscaping throughout the corridor. The enhancements will reduce the annual cost of maintaining our gardens by $2,800 each year and are scheduled for completion by the end of June 2014.

8MBA’s garden enhancements are part of a corridor-wide blitz by Eight Mile’s communities and MDOT to ensure that our medians are well-maintained throughout warm-weather months.

In addition to our garden crews, you’ll see regular mowing and litter removal throughout the corridor. 8MBA facilitated a partnership between MDOT and the Cities of Ferndale, Oak Park, Southfield and Warren to coordinate the maintenance of Eight Mile’s medians between Grand River and Kelly. We sincerely appreciate their collaborative efforts to keep Eight Mile looking its best.

Please contact 8MBA with any feedback about our gardens or the condition of the Eight Mile medians.
