Floura Teeter worked with Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) on the new MD Route 30 Hampstead Bypass located in Carroll County. This new seven-mile, dual lane highway includes three roundabouts and passes through residential, commercial, and institutional areas.
Floura Teeter’s responsibilities included developing the design-build performance specifications for roadside landscape and reforestation design, developing planting zones, and reviewing documents prepared by the design-build team for quality control. Primary landscape design elements included gateway and roadside plantings, reforestation, stormwater facility planting, and streetscape design. Floura Teeter worked closely with all SHA departments and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources to ensure that the design would be context sensitive, cost effective, environmentally appropriate, and sustainable. Floura Teeter was also responsible for ensuring compliance with all Maryland tree laws including the MD Reforestation Law, MD Roadside Tree Law, and the Forest Conservation Act, as applicable.
