ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Local businesses have teamed up with the Missouri Department of Transportation to keep the landscape alongside Interstate 64 maintained and beautiful.
According to Jack Wang, a MoDOT spokesman, the I-64 landscape program offers businesses an opportunity to maintain the landscape or sponsor the upkeep by paying the maintenance fee for their stretch of road.
Outdoor Solutions, Nature One and Mixed Chicks are sponsoring the stretch of I-64 from Spoede to Big Bend, providing a bright entrance to the St. Louis area, Wang said.
Leaders from MoDOT, Natural One and Outdoor Solutions were on hand Thursday morning for the unveiling of the new landscape signs. The signs will be posted in both directions of the interstate near Brentwood, and will indicate the portion of the roadway maintained by each business.
