The ICC is a significant new roadway in suburban Maryland creating a much-needed highway connection between Montgomery and Prince George’s counties. Seventeen miles of roadway were completed in four phases at a cost of over $2.5 billion. Contracted directly with the builder, Floura Teeter worked with a team of engineers, biologists, and ecologists to produce final landscape plans and construction oversight for 14 miles of roadway.
Goals and concerns for the ICC included:
Floura Teeter brought a significant level of collaboration, coordination, and communication initiatives to the implementation team – resulting in a highly successful project.
Receiving an Honor Award from the Maryland Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (MD ASLA), this project was cited by the jury as “a template, case study, and example of an ecologically sensitive road corridor that all should study and follow.”
