SH 121/SH 360 landscape in Grapevine to be enhanced

1

The city of Grapevine will add plants and landscape features to enhance the corridor along the intersection of SH 121 and SH 360 after council approved quality of life funds for the project Aug. 20.

The total project cost is $791,164, $750,000 of which will be reimbursed to the city from state grants, including the Green Ribbon Project. The remaining balance will be funded through the city’s quality of life fund, according to meeting documents. The project will also include a section of Stone-Myers Parkway northward to Timberline Drive.

This is the fifth Green Ribbon Project the city has received funding for and is part of an overall larger Connector landscaping project stretching more than 2 miles along SH 114 and FM 2499, according to meeting documents.

At the meeting, Parks and Recreation Director Kevin Mitchell said Green Ribbon Project funding was recently approved for the sixth phase of the project. He will return to council at a later date to request approval for that project.

The fifth phase of the landscape improvements is scheduled to take place this fall, Mitchell said.
