Located across three counties on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, the MD 404 project consists of the design and construction of two additional lanes along the existing alignment to create a 4-lane divided highway. Floura Teeter provided arborist, landscape architectural design, and landscape inspection services for the 9-mile dualization.
A design-build project, Floura Teeter, in coordination with the lead engineer, prepared preliminary and final design drawings, plans, specifications and estimates for roadside landscape planting, stormwater management landscape planting, and reforestation design.
Arboriculture/arborist services included identifying and locating all significant/specimen/champion trees and developing an avoidance and minimization report.
Floura Teeter is conducting a multi-year case study of the completed project to monitor soils, plant succession, and hydrology of the roadside landscape to identify candidate species for future projects.
