On May 11, 2013, local Cub Scouts participated in a volunteer event to landscape an area off I-95 southbound near the Centreport Parkway exit ramp in Stafford County. The Cub Scouts, from Aquia District Pack 213, were joined by Virginia Delegate Mark Dudenhefer, Stafford County Supervisor Cord Sterling and representatives from the 95 Express Lanes project.

The volunteers and elected officials in attendance planted more than 20 trees, provided under the 1,000 Trees in 1,000 Days program. Through the program, Transurban-Fluor is partnering with communities located near the 95 Express Lanes corridor to plant 1,000 trees over the course of the project's construction.

Delegate Mark Dudenhefer and Supervisor Cord Sterling identified the Centreport Parkway area as a good candidate for the 1,000 Trees program.
