Fountain Square to be dedicated Oct. 4

(Continued)

Somerset —

A simple landscape of lawn, evergreen shrubs, grasses and trees creates a low maintenance frame for the plaza. Six of the existing cherry trees are preserved. Concrete planters provide opportunities for seasonal color.
Stamped crosswalks provide safe pedestrian crossings directly to Fountain Square. A raised island with a roll curb and stamped concrete is a pedestrian refuge at East Mt. Vernon Street.
“This is the first time people using a wheelchair have access to the square,” Bourne said. 
New striping and arrows will help direct traffic through the square. Signage will be consolidated and relocated on mast arms.
Hil-Don Inc., Burkesville, is general contractor for the project.
