Motorists entering Noblesville will have a more appealing view. Beginning this week, crews will be planting several varieties of decorative grass and bushes along both sides of a portion of Allisonville Road.
City officials said the plantings were specially chosen because of the fact that they are hardier and more tolerant to the salt and brine used in the winter. On both sides of the road, the plantings will begin at the viaduct, which is located just north of the Wellingtons subdivisions. Along the west side of Allisonville the plantings will end at the driveway for Vectren, and along the east side of the road the plantings will end at the lift station.
This project is a joint effort of the Mayor’s Office, Noblesville Tree Board and the Noblesville Common Council.
“Allisonville is one of the main thoroughfares into the city, so we wanted to make the right-of-way area more attractive for those coming into Noblesville from the south,” said Mayor John Ditslear.
As nice as the end result will look, the best news of all for motorists and residents is that there will be no traffic restrictions during the project.
