Construction on Fountain Square will commence next week

(Continued)

Somerset —

A simple landscape of lawn, evergreen shrubs, grasses and trees will create a low maintenance frame for the plaza. Six of the existing cherry trees will be preserved. Concrete planters will provide opportunities for seasonal color.
New stamped crosswalks will provide more safe pedestrian crossings directly to Fountain Square. A raised island with a roll curb and stamped concrete will be a pedestrian refuge at East Mt. Vernon Street. 
New striping and arrows will help direct traffic through the square. Signage will be consolidated and relocated on mast arms.
