Trees are installed into the median at the fork of Spring and Main streets.

The whimsical median at 9th and Main is finally getting its landscaping, after sitting incomplete for the last several months. The project broke ground in January, and will provide color to what was previously a triangular strip of asphalt at the confluence of Spring and Main streets.

Early work on progressed quickly, but the site stalled after the city had completed installation of the basic structure. Today a landscaping crew arrived to plant trees, install utilities, and move the project toward completion.

Along with greenery, the project will also provide nighttime light for the expanding evening uses on the corner.
