MNDOT Roadside Greening: Installation Day

The Columbia Park neighbor volunteers in cooperation with MNDOT project manager Todd Carroll and Hennepin County Sentence to Serve spent a sunny Friday morning installing over 200 trees, bushes and plants along HWY 47 (University AV NE).  Over the next few weeks they also spread two loads of shredded hardwood mulch and watered the area to keep the plants alive.
