Islands on I-293 get sprucing up in Manchester
A crew began clearing the three islands and median strip Friday and should be finished with the landscaping makeover by the end of next week, said Peter Capano, chief of the parks division within the city’s Highway Department.
Beaulieu said she began alerting highway and parks officials they were not maintaining the median and islands at the Exit 5 interchange as they were supposed to under an agreement with the state.
Capano said the neglect was partly due to lack of staff, who devoted most of their time during the summer and early fall to maintaining high-traffic parks and athletic fields.
He said crews should be done clearing the site of weeds, making room for perennials and shrubs and bringing in bark mulch by Friday.
“It’s amazing what one taxpayer can do to make things happen in our city,” Beaulieu said.
