1,000 Trees in 1,000 Days Program Completed

Dec 22, 2014

As part of our long-term commitment to the communities in which we live, work and operate, Transurban-Fluor started the 1,000 Trees in 1,000 Days program in order to give back to the communities surrounding the I-395/95 corridors – and return some of the greenery, which makes our area so beautiful.

The tree plantings began in Fall 2012, and we are excited to announce that we reached our 1,000 trees commitment, with the last trees planted in November.   

Transurban-Fluor partnered with communities located near the Express Lanes construction corridor and provided a total of 1,000 Trees to 17 different organizations and communities – such as partnering with Girl Scout Troop 6115 to plant 22 trees at the Burke United Methodist Church in Burke, Virginia and assist students, teachers and clergy at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church and School in planting a ceremonial tree in Triangle, Virginia.

Applications were accepted and trees were awarded throughout the 29-month 95 Express Lanes construction schedule.
