Tallgrass Landscape Architecture provided Master Planning, including meeting planning, facilitation, and backgrounds for the public input process. Currently Phase 1 is under construction and Phase 2 is being designed. The streetscape design for one of the Black Hills’ most travelled routes - Jackson Boulevard, from Interstate 90’s Exit 17 to Black Hills State University highlights Spearfish as the Black Hill’s “City of Fall Color” and recalls a journey through Spearfish Canyon. Large boulders are being brought from several locations to represent the different levels of the canyon. Plantings are durable and mimic the character of the canyon, while earthwork in the medians creates a unique travel experience.
Streetscape plans include boulevards, entry features, medians, ADA compliance, street lighting, a bridge aethetic maker, the “ellispabout” - a roundabout feature, plantings, irrigation and other elements to comprise a complete street remodel.
