Landscape enhancement work to bring intermittent traffic and noise impacts

-

Work to enhance landscaping at the corner of 11th Avenue and Capitol Way near three new “moon trees” and the World War II memorial will continue the week of Feb. 24.

There will be intermittent traffic and noise impacts associated with the work. The work is weather dependent.

Campus Gateways

The corner is one of two gateways to the Capitol Campus to gain an upgrade in accord with the original campus design known as the Olmsted Plan as work to plant 100 new trees on the campus continues. Last fall, landscaping was improved at the corner of Sid Snyder and Capitol Way as new trees were planted there.

Final tree to be planted on Arbor Day

About half of the 100 trees have been planted so far. Plans call for planting the final tree during an April 8 Arbor Day celebration. The event will be held at 11 a.m. on the North Diagonal lawn.
