Landscaped Medians & Roadways
Since 2011, KOP-BID has landscaped roadway medians along DeKalb Pike and First Avenue, landscaped portions of Henderson Road, and installed landscaping at the I-76 off ramp. The former concrete medians are now full of life year-round with lush perennials, shrubs, grasses, and bulbs.
KOP-BID funded $75,000 worth of landscape improvements to Henderson Road in spring 2013, as part of the Henderson Road expansion project completed by Upper Merion Township (UMT). The landscape improvements included a mix of 495 native PA shrubs, 54 shade and ornamental flowering trees, and 750 perennials and groundcovers. In early 2013, KOP-BID installed 8,000 flower bulbs at Exit 329 off of the Schuylkill Expressway. The bulbs were donated to KOP-BID by America Responds with Love, in cooperation with the King of Prussia Mall.
