Q. Who is responsible for watering all the new trees that have been planted along Military Cutoff? It would be a shame to have these expensive plantings die due to lack of water.
A. “The contractor that was awarded the project has to maintain the trees for a period of one year, watering included, then the city will take over maintenance,” said Joseph Chance, N.C. Department of Transportation Division 3 deputy traffic engineer.
The trees were recently planted as part of the TIP Military Cutoff Road project, which funds the work, said Joseph Chance, N.C. Department of Transportation Division 3 deputy traffic engineer.
The landscaping was done by Staniel Key Landscaping of Kernersville, Chance said.
TIP stands for Transportation Improvement Program. All projects receiving federal funding must be in the TIP, according to NCDOT.
The project included planting various types of trees along the multi-use path from near Mayfaire Town Center to the Northeast Regional Library, Chance recently said.
