The state Department of Transportation does not often receive compliments, but this one is well deserved.
Thanks to District 4 Secretary Jim Wolfe, the intersection of I-95 and I-595 is being beautifully landscaped with terraces, retention ponds and trees. What a difference this is making for the driving experience.
The department has historically not paid a lot of attention to the aesthetics of its work, and while this project is no doubt very expensive, it could be replicated to some extent in future projects along our major roads. Thanks, District 4 FDOT.
Dick Blattner, city commissioner, Hollywood
