City proposing green gateway from I-65

A widening project for a Greenwood road will include landscaping meant to improve visitors’ first impression of the city.

Greenwood plans to spend $30 million to widen Worthsville Road into a four-lane thoroughfare between a new Interstate 65 interchange and U.S. 31. The city will line the median of the widened street with trees, shrubs and decorative mulch to give visitors a positive impression of Greenwood, community development services director Mark Richards said.

No previous city road projects have included a landscaped median, Richards said. City officials want Worthsville Road to have a more appealing look, because it will be a major gateway into the southern part of the city, he said.
