This morning while on my way to the train station I was reminded of something that, a couple years ago, I thought was odd. Along the center divider from the 5 fwy to Technology, the grass has been replaced with artificial turf.
I am wondering why. It could be they put the divider in later and it would cost too much to run water out to it. Another thought is that, while athestically pleasing to the eyes, the real grass kept dying due to the emmissions and debris from the freeway and on/off ramps.
Anyone have any answers? Also has anyone noticed anything like this in their cities that are geared mor toward conserving resources?
