ALAMANCE COUNTY, N.C. — Alamance County officials are teaming up to re-landscape parts of I-40 and I-85 in an effort to make the interstate more scenic.
The Burlington Times-News reported that the Department of Transportation and the New Leaf Society will be working on the $250,500 project through June.
Six Alamance County exits are planned to be re-landscaped including Interstate 40/85 interchanges at University Drive, Huffman Mill Road, Alamance Road, Maple Avenue, Trollingwood Road and Mebane Oaks Road.
The paper reported that the project is funded through federal dollars earmarked specifically for highway beautification.
Officials said the project will bring everything from maple trees to lilies to the interstate.
