What is the status of the median beautification (landscaping) project for 720 between the tollway and 423? I thought it was supposed to have started already?

Mr. Parchman

The medians along 720 west of the Toll Road were to be developed third. Currently, the City has a crew dedicated improving medians and is currently working on the first two sets of medians. These are the medians in Hillcrest from 121 to College and the medians around Lowes.

I would anticipate that the irrigation and constructions work, except the planting of trees will be completed in September for these first two areas. At that time, this crew will move to 720 and start installing irrigation and leveling the medians. It should be noted that early on staff indicated that we felt we had funds available to improve from the Toll Road to Teel. We will go as far west as funds allow but I do not think that it will be to 423.

This construction crew was formed this year and this type of median work is not something the City has done at this scale before. We are refining scheduling, construction time estimates and cost estimates as some of these medians are being completed. We appreciate the Frisco’s patience as we work through these issues.

Just a question. If you are heading north on Twin Falls and waiting to turn onto 720, if you look left (east) there is a small pine tree that is planted there. This tree is in the way of seeing traffic that is heading west on 720. Is there any way this tree can be moved about 1-2 feet back toward the fence?

We will check the intersection to determine if any modifications are necessary.

Thank you
