MD 200/Intercounty Connector Contracts A and B

The ICC is a 17-mile roadway in suburban Maryland that creates a regional highway connection between Montgomery and Prince George’s counties. The last of four phases was completed in 2014, at a total project cost of over $2.5 billion. Floura Teeter worked with a team of engineers, biologists, and ecologists to produce final landscape plans and construction oversight for 14 miles of roadway.

Receiving an Honor Award from the Maryland Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects 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.”

The landscape plans included:

  • Compliance with stringent environmental regulations.
  • Context-sensitive plantings consistent with the original landscape but able to withstand substantial disturbance and post-construction conditions.
  • Plantings to attract wildlife and provide escape/ circulation routes.
  • Seed mixes tailored to the varied ecological conditions.

Floura Teeter brought a significant level of collaboration, coordination, and communication initiatives to the implementation team – resulting in a highly successful project.
