City plans landscaping project at roundabout
COLUMBUS, Ind. – The City of Columbus is designing the Mill Race Center roundabout this summer as a bicentenary project. Located at the intersection of 11th, Brown and Lindsey Streets with Indianapolis Road, the property is one of the main entrances to the Downtown Arts and Entertainment District.
The Department of Public Works, Parks and Recreation and Community Development worked with Columbus in Bloom, which is funding the project, to design and build an aesthetically pleasing entrance without compromising line of sight for traffic.
Parts of the old railroad trestle in Noblitt Park will be integrated into the landscaping. The beautification project is low maintenance and involves a combination of stone, grass, perennials, and bushes.
Becky Church, who tends the downtown flowers and leaves for the city, designed the project and oversees the installation.
