Restoring Southlake’s Natural Beauty

The City of Southlake is partnering with TxDot and participating in the Green Ribbon Project to beautify the highways and restore some of Southlake’s natural beauty.

Approximately 400 trees are being added along Highway 114 between Dove Road and Carroll Avenue in addition to drip irrigation which will be installed at each tree to help establish the plant material. The Green Ribbon Project which started around April 11th should be completed by the end of July (depending on rain delays).

The program was created by a special committee and group of consultants, with input from the public in order to provide a plan representing all members of the Southlake community. The primary goal is to establish a higher level of visual appeal along the roads through landscape and architectural improvements but also to promote and enhance highway safety and maintain traffic flow.
