Improvements planned for spring 2018 include a new irrigation system, erosion repair and turf replacement, drainage improvement to practice fields, tree additions and removal of some declining trees.
Urban Forestry Opens a New Window.
We are replacing trees in medians across Plano over the next several months due to the serious decline in health and safety to the trees in the medians and to provide a healthy urban forest for Plano residents. The three locations are:
•Park Boulevard from Avenue P to Avenue R and Peachtree Lane to Shiloh Road
•Coit Road from Plano Parkway to President George Bush Turnpike
•Parker Road between Coit Road and Mission Ridge Road and Independence Parkway to Deep Valley Trail
Approximately 160 new trees will be planted in their place as well as irrigation, turf and a new median design. The new design will include concrete edging to separate the turf and trees. Woodchips will also be laid around the base of the trees to keep the roots cool and help them retain moisture. Currently, the stumps are being removed from the sites, starting with Park Boulevard and moving west to Coit Road and Parker Road. You can expect some lane closures while the crews are working in the medians.
