Living Snow Fence Research Project

CDOT Environmental Design Intern Jenni Kerns has been researching living snow fences: planted shrubs along CDOT ROW that serve as wind and snow barriers, thereby reducing snow drift and vehicular accidents. A pilot project is being proposed in Roggen, CO off of 270. 

Landscape Renderings

CDOT Landscape Architecture staff produced Photoshop renderings to visualize improvements to CDOT bridges along I-70 as part of a bridge replacement project from Tennyson St west to County Rd 93. The Landscape Architecture section produces Design Guidelines or "Aesthetic Treatment Plans" for bridges throughout the state, selecting colors and materials to unite a corridor.
