The City’s Department of Transportation announced on Oct. 27 that it will install more than a dozen planters alongside Woodhaven Boulevard in an effort to add a splash of greenery to the motorway. Over the next year, the flowers will be maintained by the Queens Botanical Gardens.
Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians traveling down Woodhaven Boulevard will now see colorful and lovely new planters along the corridor.
On Monday, Councilman Eric Ulrich, the Department of Transportation (DOT) and Queens Botanical Garden (QBG) announced a new project to install 15 planters along Woodhaven Boulevard from 86th Road to 88th Avenue.
“We’re really trying to add some green, beautiful space to the concrete jungle,” said Ulrich, who funded the installations. “A very busy place where I think it’s really needed.”
