IDOT Highway 74 Interchange Prairie Restoration

This project is part of a roadside planting that was conducted in an effort to beautify Illinois’ roadsides with wildflower plantings. The project was planned in three small but highly visible areas at the Interstate 74 & N. Mattis Avenue overpass, totaling about one acre.  The species list consisted of plants chosen so that there would be different wildflowers blooming from early spring to late fall.
